Asked by Mar 25, 2014 at 08:03 PM about the 2005 Mazda Tribute i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the car shifts fine, when starting from a stop and accelerating up to any speed.... but recently i noticed that if i take my foot off the accelerator, to slow down, and then re apply the accelerator the tranny bangs and jerks the car... i can tell its the tranny .. it almost feels like i threw it into a different gear suddenly while going...it  only happens sporatically, and never happens when just accelerating, or just deccelerating... only mid way going back and forth on the gas pedal.. i had the fluid flushed and changed twice in the past 20.000 miles...

Have the vehicle looked at, might be your motor or trans mount is broken or maybe it's transmission or driveline related.
