I’ve been experiencing some noticeable clunkiness with my transmission. No CEL, no transmission malfunctions, just the rough shifts particularly from 1-2 and 2-1 and some other symptoms. Coming to a stop I’m experiencing the “hump” that feels like you just got rear ended. Other notable issues are sometimes instead of experiencing the “hump” the car seems like it gets stuck trying to downshift from 2-1 and the RPM will bounce back and forth from roughly 650 to 900 until you feather the brake slightly to let the car roll. There’s also a very noticeable metallic like vibration when the car is in R or D, but goes away in N or D. The sound seems to trigger when coming to a stop and the car tries to shift from 2 to 1. And lastly, when I try to reverse the transmission will slip and jerk once or twice before fully engaging reverse and backs up smoothly.
From what I’ve researched, it seems like this is most likely mechatronics unit related. It sounds like initially the whole unit had to be replaced (~$2200), but theres now a revised circuit foil repair for about $450 (Thanks Ape).
I’m making an appointment to have it checked out and will post what they discover but until then, can any of the more technical members weigh in on this?
Appreciate the input as always!
