I have a 2001 Monte Carlo. When I am accelerating, especially up hills, it shakes, sometimes really badly. If I let off the gas, the shaking totally stops. The shaking is the worst between about 15mph to about 45mph. When I get up to highway speed, it is greatly reduced. It shifts fine without any hard jolts or anything. I know my right front wheel hub needs replaced since it is causing an issue with my traction system. Could this also be the cause of this shaking?

My 1998 Olds Bravada has violent shaking at 0-30 mph with no shifting of the trasmission beyond 30 mph. RPMs up to 2100 after 30 MPH. After 30 MPH and approximately 25% of the time I can manual shift into neutral and then back to drive and the shaking will stop. Also when slowing to a stop, sometimes you can feel a bang of the downshift. When gradually accelerating everytime, the problem persists. Bravada was running fine with no problems, and just one day all of a sudden, this problem occu

My name is Kenny from Dalas, Texas I have a 95 1 ton chevy van with a 4L80E Transmission. It started shifting hard a couple of days ago. Ichanged the Filter and The Fluid. Now it takes along time to shift out of first gear. Could this be caused by the solenoids? What are my chances replacing the solenoids will fix the problem?


Shifting hard goes to line pressure. Check the filter you put in. There's a short version and a long version. If you have the long version in there, it will bottom out in the pan. Do not change the solenoids because it already shifts differently afte ... Chevrolet G30

2006 F150 King Ranch 4x4, transmission was shifting hard and would make a grinding noise and vibration (lockup solenoid?) at low speeds when tranny was cool. Shifted fine and no noise / vibration when fluid warmed up. Tranny eventually failed and was rebuilt but have continued having the grinding noises and vibration. It happens when driving in residential areas (25 mph) in the mornings. Seems to happen when shifting from 1 to 2 or after driving steadily at 20 - 30 mph. letting off the gas

1993 chevy cavalier, 2.2 automatic transmission. how to replace speedometer solenoid inside transmission? The part I have is a wells TCS2 solenoid.

My 2001 Bonneville SSEI is shifting hard when the car is warm. I had a transmission fluid change with new filter a few weeks ago and it seemed to start after that. I also had a new thermostat put in at that time. I had a transmission guy scan it and say that I needed a new electronic pressure solenoid. It is about a $800 repair. I have read that there are shift kits for this and that also the thermostat can cause this problem. I don't want to spend $800 if I don't have to.

1998 isuzu rodeo has intermittent hard shift from 2nd to 3rd gear and extreme hard downshift from 3rd to 2nd gear. When this happens it may hard shift only a couple of times OR it may do the same thing for a day or two OR most recently it may continue for several days. Sometimes the hard shift occurs immediately after the car is started but sometimes it may be shifting smoothly with the engine & transmission "warmed up" and all of a sudden the "hard shift" begins. The downshift is a loud grind


Hi. If your driving an automatic transmission please try to change the transmission fluid and filter, a smooth run will be noticeable after performing this. If you're driving on a manual transmission then there may be a problem on the clutch lining, ... Isuzu Rodeo

I own a 2002 Ford F150 SuperCrew- TCS flashes at low idle,It goes off when truck accelerates. Transmission shifts fine in all gears and if I hit the tcs at highway speed it downshifts to third gear with no problem. If I hit the switch again it goes back to overdrive. I have had regular maintenance on tranny and changed the filter and fluid every 35k. Truck has 122,000 miles and I am original owner. Any idea's as to what may be causing the off light to flash?


The flashing is the transmission reporting a problem. Only way to figure it out ( that I know of ) is to have the transmission looked at.The flashing is generated by the PCM, which controls the engine and transmission. Without a CEL, th ... 2002 Ford F150 Regular Cab

Just replaced a transmission on our f150 and now the gauges(oil and temp) on the dash will not work and the transmission is shifting hard. Also the abs plug on the master cylander burnt when we put the battery on. Is this a sign there is a short in the brake wiring causing the rest of the problems?

I have a 2004 F150 4x4 Crew Cab with 60K miles. The 4x4 is not working, and I get a grinding noise from the right front wheel when I shift into 4x4. The dealer already replaced the upper and lower vacuum lines and the solenoid thinking they were the culprit, but I still have no 4x4. What else could be causing this problem?

Transmission Issue. I have a 2005 Altima SE-R, 3.5L, auto trany. The transmission jerks, sometimes quite hard, while downshifting between 2nd and 1st usually when coming off the highway onto an off ramp or coming to a red light.... could the solenoid valves or transmission mounts cause this, the problem doesn't happen all the time but its starting to get annoying... any need is appreciated. thanks


This can be caused by a number of things, like a dirty transmission filter, sticky solenoid valve, or worn out transmission fluid. I would recommend that you change the fluid and filter as this should resolve the issue. Seafoam makes a t ... 2005 Nissan Altima

I have a 1997 dodge Dakota 5.2l v8 with 165,000 miles. There is a couple of problems that I'm not sure what it is. 1st problem is when the car is rolling I hear a type of grinding noise by the front drivers side wheel. It's not the brakes cause they are new. The 2nd thing is the truck seems to shift hard from 1st to 2nd and downshifts at slow speed too soon. The 3rd is I'm hearing a some vibrating noise in the rear when I take off or turn from a stop.


First if breaks aren't dragging and you had pads replaced, and rotors turned or replaced. Jack up the front and check the wheel bearings by pushing in on the top of the wheel and pushing in on the bottom in a jerking motion. You should feel any movem ... 1997 Dodge Dakota

Along with the hard shifting it jumps/jerks when it engages into 3rd gear.when downshifting Very hard shift into lower gears and car slows with a jerking feeling/motion. It doesn't do it all the time. Took it to Hyundai and it won't do it for them. looked to see if there were any recalls. Nothing for 2005 but in 2001 there was one for: automatic transaxle harsh and/or delayed upshift or downshift - gds analysis.
