Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When in park the rpm is fine and car isn't jerking but if I'm
sitting idle in reverse gear the car jumps and jerks until
switched to park or drive, I cleaned the iacv any
suggestions?

1 Answer

There might by a transmission problem involving the clutch, but I'm not 100% sure. It may be as simple as not enough fluid in the transmission.
