Asked by Oct 07, 2016 at 07:32 AM about the 2007 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so ive been given a few ideas of whats wrong
with my car. It takes when i stop and stsrt to go
again it kind of does a hard catch. Kinda jerks a
little going into 1st. Smoothest ride ever after that
then when i slow down to turn or slow down to let
someone turn and it's almost a stop but not
co.pletely it takes it a minute to again catch 1st
gear to go. I was told it was the fluid and filter
needing to be changed. Someone said tranny
could be fried etc. What do yall think?

Could be a torque converter too, it gets its fluid from the tranny, so maybe check fluid levels and a tranny flush and filter change would probably help. BUT if there is something wrong with the tranny, you'll just be wasting money changing fluid. A tranny shop with computer diagnostics might be your best bet. FYI when checking trans fluid, make sure trans is at the proper operating temperature, otherwise you'll get a false reading on fluid level.

The fluid level is full. And a tranny shop judt put it on computer diagnostic with no codes or anything on it so basically to a stand still. No codes no check engine light nothing
