My car is doing a sort of jumping/grinding action if I push the gas a little further when I take off, it sometimes does it when the car shifts into second. What is the problem?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When this happens the car shakes
really bad.

1 Answer


Hopefully it's not the tranny. You may have broken transmission mounts, bad wheel bearings, bad CV shafts. I would take it to a shop ASAP before you do too much damage. If you plan on fixing it yourself, I would get it off the ground and try to recreate the sound. Locate it, and start tearing into it.
