Any CEL's? Does it jump hard when you put it into gear (R or D)?

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.

If you can get it to repeat it consistently then I would take it in. My tranny had stuff installed wrong from the factory so you never know.

i can quite easily. Its very predictable, I have to go back to the dealer anyway, my back window defroster only defrosts half the window. haha. I called them about it and the only thing he said was the mounts or low tranny fluid. I guess we'll see then.

apparenly this car devolops a memory to driving styles. My car was previously owned by a younger chick, so i think i figured out what happened. Lol, that and i was a little low on tranny fluid
