96 Avalon transmission problem
I have a 96 Avalon and when the transmission shifts, the cars pulls to one side and then the other between the shift. It is an AT. It is most noticeable when it is shifting from 3rd to OD. I took it to a transmission shop and they said it does it because the control arm bushings are worn out and it will cost about $500 to fix. According to them, there is nothing in the transmission that will make the car do that. I have to say I'm skeptical about changing the bushing as i really dont believe them. To me, It feels like the power delivery to both the wheels is not equal as in between the shifting process, theres more power delivery to the right wheel first and then more power to the left wheel which is causing it. By now you must have figured out i dont know much about cars. can it really be some worn out bushings that make it do that? Other than that, everything shifts perfectly on time and everything. Can it really be the worn out control arm bushings that make it do that? help!
