My automatic transmission seems to have gradually developed some
quirks. Most notably:
When you shift into drive or reverse, there is a pause, followed by an
audible clunk, and sometimes the car jerks forward or backward a bit.
When shifting between gears with the lever, it seems a bit loud as
well- you can hear the clicks from outside the car.
When driving, the car seems to delay when shifting from 1st to 2nd
gear. Especially noticeable if excellerating fast- the engine roars,
and then there's a pause before further acceleration.
The car is otherwise mechanically okay except for a dirty carb and
funky vacuum lines which need to be replaced. The tranny seems to
have no leaks. It's overfilled but I'm told that that's no big deal.
The underside of the car got splashed last year- dont know what effect
that might have had.
