wasn't a beauty queen, but what concerned me was the jerk here and there wh en shifting (I didn't go over 40, just ran it up and down this road a few times). Didn't jerk every time. The tranny fluid was clear but brown. What's the chances the problem could be rectified w/a new filter and fluid change ? I like to change the fluid a few times when buying a used car. 130k milea ge. Cheap, but don't have the facilities or desire to do a tranny swap if n eed be. Car has been sitting for 1.5 years. Also needed a fuel pump, which the owner did. TIA.
