It started it 2 weeks ago in the morning. I put it in reverse and it felt like it hesitated? When i drive it is fine for a while and then it kind jerksIt Feels like someone lightly hits me in the rear while accelerating.
No noise, runs smooth most of the time. My mechanic cannot feel it. Of course when he drives it. I have had 2 people with me and they feel it, however it is slight. Kind of chugs for a second without noise. Sorry, i don't know how to describe. Someone said maybe transmission?
Around 40 miles an hour. My car has 217,000 miles on it and burning oil. But otherwise runs well. I just had the spark plugs and gasket replaced and oil change. It is intermittent. While driving it is smooth and only when I accelerate it does the skip thing.
absolutely no noise...smooth. You can just feel the hesitation.
Think of putting your foot on the pedal to accelerate and the gear changes, which I think is suppose to happen when you are going uphill and flooring it so it will catch up. It feels like that only going slower. You can feel it and it last for a second or two then fine.
When you say rumble do you mean noise? What I feel is the back end and maybe the front a little. Not a rumble. Does not really shake.
It is a 2004 XLS Endeavor. SUV, yes i think there is a slight vibration. I noticed it too, but not severe. I have had it aligned before due to the vibration. That would not cause the slipping though?
I don't know that i ever had it changed or flushed. I don't know what kind...yikes!
okay good advise. I will start there. When you say buy over the counter Mitsubishi SP111. I am in the Santa Cruz area not close to a Mitsubishi dealer. Can I buy this in a Auto store? or alternative SP111?
Thank you so much...
