Asked by Mar 14, 2012 at 05:46 PM about the 1984 Pontiac Firebird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When stepping on the gas from a stop the whole car jerks and sorta shoots me back into my seat when it shifts from first to
second but not shifting to any other gear but if I let off the gas before it shifts to second it doesn't jerk at all. what could the
problem be and what could potentially fix this???

It's staying in first

If its not that
