My transmission seems like it's not long for this world. Yesterday, after driving home without incident, speeds up to 120km/h (75mph) I got back in the car, and when accelerating from a stop, the jar started to judder. If I kept the acceleration to an absolute bare minimum, I could keep it from doing it, but it really wasn't able to tolerate much at all. It doesn't appear to matter which (forward) gear the transmission is in. It seems to be primarily at low speed/low gearing, I hadn't experienced it at speeds over 40km/h (25mph) but by then, I was being really light on the pedal. It seemed to be a bit better this morning, and I was able to drive to work without incident, but I also stayed really easy on the pedal, much to the annoyance of some people who were behind me at the light. I'd had other problems last spring, which seemed to be better when the weather was warmer. When coming to a stop, there would be a "clunk" as I was either nearly at a stop, or shortly after coming to a stop. Getting off of the brake and back on the gas before this "clunk" would result in something that felt kind of like a neutral drop, or suddenly dropping a clutch. As I said, it was worse in cold weather, and when the transmission was cold. Over the summer, the problem was mostly gone, and I didn't pay it much attention. It started doing it again when the temperature started going below freezing at night, and now it's cold all the time, so I've just been really careful about when/how I get back on the gas when stopping. Automatic transmissions are not my strong suit. I'd switch to a manual if I had my choice, but since this is an inexpensive daily driver for me, I am not looking to do a whole lot with it. I'm not even sure that I want to do the work of swapping in a transmission (If that's what I need) nor do I really have the time. I'd like to avoid scrapping the car, but if the transmission is toast, that may be where I'm at. Realizing that there seem to be no shortage of transmission issues in these cars, is there any point in looking for a wrecker transmission?
