Why Does My Car Jerk When I Shift Gears?

Postby Chaturbhuj » Thu Oct 05, 2017 12:40 pm

My car jerks when it's shifting from 2 (More like 1 1/2) to 1 the first 5-10 minutes of driving, after those 5-10 minutes it doesn't jerk when shifting gears. I've had the car for over 7 months and it's never done that before. Anyone know a reason why it might be doing that?

I have a 2001 Buick Lesabre Custom 3.8L V6.

maybe you have to wait until your gear oil warms up. It might need to be changed and flushed could be old and very thick.

HMMM.
I have always driven similar, and never had that problem.
Love my little Buicks.

Probably because it gets turned on when you shift gears. ;D

Check your automatic transmission fluid and top up if needed.
