Knock & Tug

Asked by Jun 29, 2016 at 01:04 AM about the 1996 Nissan Maxima SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 96 Nissian Maxima. When I press on
the gas pedal it accelates as it should but I hear a
single knock noise and it kind of jerks forward a
tiny bit. I know it has something to do with the
transmission. But whaaaaaat ?

Take it to 3 or 4 trans places and just have them tell you what they think it is and how much it will cost to fix.See if two tell you the same thing.if you have them fix, make sure u trust them!


Sounds like a bad motor or transmission mount


Start by,Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down See if you get a transmission code..or other DTC code
