    Lurch at full stop. Automatic transmission seems to drop into lowest gear harshly.
    When coming to full stop, car lurches as if you had just put it into first gear from neutral. Has not been well maintained. High mileage. Trans fluid not low. Wondering if it could possibly be something less expensive then rebuild or replace.

    When I'm driving the car I feel a shake in the gas pedal but the sound is heard through out the car is this a danger?
    What could it be that needs to be fixed. When I'm going straight it does it some times it's not constant. I've beentold that it could be the cv joint because when I pull on the wheel it shifts outward some but the driver side wheel doesn't.

    There is a vibration coming from where the shifter is for the automatic transmission.
    Recently my civic has been making a vibration from where the shifter is. It's an automatic. It revs without vibration all the way until it gets to 6000rpm's and then until it reaches redline at 6700rpm's it vibrates. So between 6000- 6700 it vibrates. It sounds ...

      Only thing that is back there that makes substantial whine or "roaring" noise when it fails is a rear wheel bearing.

      what would be the est. cost of this repair?
    • HouseCallAuto

      depends on if it has rear disc brakes or rear drum brakes but approximate bill would be $250 about for one side only. You only need to fix the side that has the noise.

      I'm sure its you and not the car. The car is brand new. You cannot compare this car to any other that youlearned on.

      Simple answer - first read the vehicle owners manual to make sure the shifting and clutch action is fully understood.
      This first step is important - not meant to insult your expertise or history with the manual transmissions - but at least you can follow up at the dealership, and state conclusively you have read and followed the recommended description in the owners manual.

      Typically, with any new car under warranty any strange clutch sounds or noises would qualify for the dealership to diagnose and repair the problem - you will want to have the issue repaired / corrected as soon as possible with the vehicle having only 800 miles.

      Check the following components; clutch linkage, weak or disconnected clutch return spring, faulty clutch master or clutch slave cylinder. Any one of these may cause the low clutch pedal.

    To move the shifter i have to put the key in the shift lock release. when it is in drive it will not engage first gear.
    i have to manually shift it in to D2 or D1 to engage it in first gear. everything else with the transmission seems fine, it will up shift through all the gears. it just won't engage first gear while in D4. any suggestions will be much appreciated. thank you

    SUV drives weird when not in 4 wheel drive
    When I turn the 4x4 off and drive when its time to shift it does but its really ruff, kind of like a hesitation and a boom. But when I engage 4x4 it doesn't do it.

    What is wrong if oil is leaking into the altenator
    my milage is only 49,000 can the valve cover gasket be the issue
     
    • Jimm

      Check the engine valve cover gasket for obvious signs of leakage. The valve cover gaskets are easily and inexpensively replaced.

      Have the altenator and charging system tested for free - at any local auto parts store - then post a reply with the test results.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities. In fact, they (RockAuto) list the valve cover gasket set from around $32.00 for your vehicle.
