Transmission Rattling/Slipping

Asked by Nov 14, 2015 at 06:22 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What I think is my transmission, and because of the slipping, is making a
rattling noise like that of a rock bouncing around in a can. It shifts perfectly fine
when I am driving, but when I stop for about 30 seconds or so, at a red light
for example, it starts slipping or hard shifting. After that it takes a lot of force
on the gas pedal to get it to go and it seems to jump into gear. Any ideas on
the problem?
