car jerks when i put into drive

this happens most of the time, from when i start up and put into drive, to when i put back into drive from having it reverse, the car jerks foward. this morning when i put it into drive and didnt have my foot on the brake (but handbrake was still on), i thought the car was going to leap in the air.

what could be causing this? i dont thrash the tranny that much, and i dont remember it having always happening, maybe the last year.

Maybe try draining/flushing tranny?

How old is your car?

This jerking when the car is cold is normal. Every Camry I have ever driven from a new 03' to my mom's 01' to mine does this. Our cars are also famous for lurching forward at a light if you don't have the brake on very hard.

This lurching forward you're talking about... does it feel like your idle speed suddenly changed and caused your car to start creeping forward again (if you don't have the brakes down pretty hard)?

My car lurches forward when the A/C compressor comes on and you are siting still, light on the brake.

Yeah the idle speed does change a bit, but nothing dramatic. A Toyota tech tried explaining it to me once but I ended up with dancing monkeys in my head like Homer
As long as no damage is done, I don't care as I will just put my foot down harder.

I like you arcasmachineracing. You have spunk.

Tee hee. Please don't get mad at me.

In life, one must avoid certain things. Commenting on grammar and spelling on an international message board is one of them. In the words of Boroef “We are writing on a message board not a term paper.”

However, if you wish to play this little game I am up to the challenge.

I feel sorry that I have to do this to you. Shall we study your statements?

"Damn, that was one hell of a sentance!"
Spelling error, use sentence, not sentance.

"Not like I have never done it myself though"
Negation, implying you used a double negative in a sentence. Double negatives can be confusing and ambiguous. Consider, 'It is not as if I have ever done it myself though,' instead of what you originally typed. Follow the next rule discussed below and much of the ambiguity is removed and although not preferred the double negative is acceptable.


"Not like I have never done it myself though"
Sentence fragment, avoid using prepositional phrases without a second subject and verb. Add the term 'It is' to the beginning of your statement to complete the sentence.

"Not like I have never done it myself though"
The work like is not a preferred conjunction. Using the word like as a conjunction is acceptable only if the word like follows the verbs feel, look, seem, sound, smell and taste. Like is also acceptable if used as a short comparison. Try substituting the words 'as if' for the word like. For example:
"It is not as if I have never done it myself though."

The correction above leads to more ambiguity problems with your word choice. Notice there are now two 'its' within the sentence. In the future, do try to avoid pronouns. The correct sentence would now be "It is not as if I have never created my own lousy sentences and have been instructed how to write proper English as a result."

Now you have a passive sentence because of the inclusion of the prepositional phrase. I will reword your sentence to get rid of the passive voice. We will all now understand what you were truly trying to tell me.
"I write poor sentences and require instruction on the proper use of the English language."
