Auto Transmission change

Asked by Nov 29, 2008 at 01:43 AM about the 1995 Lexus LS 400

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, I am asking for a friend who can't use a computer. He has a new auto transmission just fitted. But the car now 'lurches' forwards each time it is put into drive? Any ideas?

1 Answer


Could be several things. The idle speed could need an adjustment; the torque converver could be malfunctioning, very possible it should have been changed with the new tranny. Best bet is to return it to the shop that did the work. I can't imagine a tranny installation without a warranty included.
