Please go easy on me because this is my first new thread. I have tried to do a lot of research on my own, but you guys seem to give good advice. If anyone has experienced this, I would appreciate any input...
After the car is warmed up, after roughly a 10 minute drive, it "hesitates." Specifically, it hesitates when I am shifting to Drive. It will pause for as many as 3-4 seconds before harshly jerking into gear.
I have also noticed lately a similar hesitation while accelerating, which I have already seen as a problem from others on the forum.
I used Gumout Regain a month or two ago, and it didn't affect the problem at all. I am beginning to be afraid the transmission is shot, and therefore my wallet... Any ideas or advice?
sounds like a bad transmission. Hesitation followed by shifting in hard means something internal.. i had similar situation on my 06. You can start simple and see if you can start ruling out things. First take it to a mechanic, describe your problems, he should check for codes, yours mounts and fluids.. if its none of those then its the transmission and you should be able to advise you on what to do...
Thank you for the response, but what exactly do you mean by that? Take it in for a general inspection?
lol. You've been so lucky with your car. You seem to know little about it because it had given you no problems till now. By scanning it means the engine/tranny is checked for possible problems, some form of diagnosis. I'm told this is done free at Auto zone. If there are problems some codes will be indicated and solutions found to the issue. Yes, your mechanic should be able to advise you accordingly.
