Hi,

Going on and off the throttle while in hi-gear (automatic) produces a slop
similiar to what loose universal joints would feel like on a rear-wheel
drive car.

Oddly; there is no such feel when in first or second gear...going on and
off the throttle then feels tight and quiet.

Under light throttle...as when slowly gaining speed on a residential
street...when the 2-3 shift occurs..it sometimes "bangs" into third... With
any greater throttle pressure...its fine.

It's pretty much always been like this...I'm the original owner and it's got
75k on it now.

Is there a fix? or at least a diagnosis?

Thanks, Chuck

Could be a worn engine/trans mounts, worn CV joints, worn tie-rods.
Check for torn CV Boots, if torn, the grease leaks out and joints will
wear. replace entire axle is torn.
check for motor mounts, open hood, have someone inside and monitor engine
movement when shifting from R to 1 st and putting slight torque on
driveshaft with breaks applied.
Do have any loose steering, maybe worn tie rods.
Good Luck

But Jim...wouldn't those areas of wear affect slop in each gear????

There is no noticeable slop in first or second...only after it's shifted
into third.
