the car wont move I then have to put it in park and
shift it immediately back into drive and then the car
goes again also sometimes when this happens
and I go to take off it feels like my engine or
something has broke lose and jumps making a big
thud noise and jolting the car.please if anyone has
any kind of idea what it could possibly be I need ur

fluid level may be very low. though it sounds like transmission internal problem ,stuck servo piston, leaking valve body, or pressure control , try pulling out from stops in another gear like 2nd maybe 1st, then to drive once moving
