Question Asked: Transmission Problem - Jerks Into Reverse
September 06, 2009, 07:45 AM
Just once a day usually, just after the first time I start it, my transmission jerks into reverse quite hard. After that, any other time I put the car into reverse, it acts just fine. Any idea what's causing that. Do I need to have it diagnosed by a mechanic?

Just a word of caution. If your mechanic has said that there's pieces of metal in your tranmission and that means it cannot be repaired. If he has suggested that you need a totally new or rebuilt transmission. Be wary and go to another mechanic for a second opinion. Over my 58 years on this planet, I've been told the same thing by every mechanic, when I had a tranmission problem. I was later advised that there's no way a tranmission can have pieces of metal floating around in it, and that's a lie told by those who want to stick you with the cost of a completely new transmission.
