Transmition

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Im proud to say that I am the owner of a 96' ES 300. I just bought it last week!!

I love the car so far, looks great, feels great, drives great!!

There is one thing that I am a bit worried about...

When Im driving and the car shifts gears, I can feel a little kick in the shift. It is most noticeable when it shifts from 2nd to 3rd gears.

I figured this is a common factor with automatics, especially one with 120xxx miles on it. But I just wanted to double check.

What do you guys think it may be ?

Thanks!

Congrats on your purchase. Unless there's something wrong, your transmission should shift fluently.

I suggest you refresh all major fluids first, starting with the tranny.

Welcome to the club cheers.gif I would also suggest doing a couple of drain and fills on the tranny, Driving a couple hundred miles between D&F's.
