    Jolt ehen accelerating

    Just yesterday driving home from work I noticed a jolt when I accelerate, like the transmission is slipping. Do you think it is a broken motor mount? Car runs fine. No messages, etc. thanks is advance

    Not sure what it might be. Not likely to be a broken motor mount.

    Re: Jolt ehen accelerating

    Do you have a CAI on the car? I get this often with my Spectre. It's the TCC solenoid locking up the converter based on signal inputs from around the engine/car, one of those is from the MAF (calculated load values, etc, that it uses based on inputs from the MAF... But I'm not a tuner, so....), as such, with all the extra amount of air coming in with the Spectre, the MAF isn't always spot-on with it's calculation vs. reality (inputs from other sensors), and it slams/jolts hard upon initial acceleration, say from a slow roll (like turning a corner or something).

    When it start happening, I put the car into an idle re-learn, and go from there. I also clean my MAF frequently, just incase to make sure it is metering properly.

    No CAI. Everything is stock.

    I don't think it is the belt slipping. It jolts and the RPM's go up a bit then back down.

    Do you think changing the transmission fluid would help?

    Sounds like it. The 3-5-R clutch pack is the weakest. That's what went on mine.

    Only if it is low now. Check the level.

    See if you can get a video of it happening.

    My first rebuild was $1050 with me dropping the trans off at the shop. That was all new clutches with including upgraded Alto clutches in the 3-5-R and 4-5-6 drums.

    That didn't last. The builder didn't put enough clearance in the 3-5-R pack and it burned up. Clutches were warrantied and I installed them with the proper amount of clearance.
