Customer Question

made loud buzzing like noise which mechanic felt was transmission. After much time and effort he was able to make it disappear. ( about 3 months ago) Now it feels like some one has rearended me when I am driving about 40-45 miles per hour. It is hard to shift at times.
JA: Have you heard this particular sound before?
Customer: no, I had 2 boxes of books in the trunk ( wt about 75 lbs) Could this have caused the problem.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** the car bucking when you are driving or when you put it into gear? Is the transmission shifting through the gears? Does it sometimes get stuck in one gear?
