nope. Its just when im comming from like a stop sign or a light or somthing. barely touching the petal it dosent do it, but under normal acceleration, it does. Maybe low on tranny fluid?

Does your car make any type of clunking/jumping symptoms if you go from D to R, then back to D (repeat process if necessary). Reason I'm asking is that it may be a mount that went bad and not the tranny.

Everything anymore does seem to be shit, but thats the world we live in. Everyone is hungry for money. I was just wondering this stuff so i dont have big problems down the road. It still runs and drives [beat a riced out civic today ] If it gets worse i guess ill just bring it back to the dealer. They gave me a 6 month 6k warrenty when i bought it.

I would suggest my 2 cents worth. Probably a bad trans mount bushing that gave or possibly the shift solenoid has worn out of wack.
