You should always wait for a few seconds after shifting into drive or reverse for the car to actually get into gear. The knock you are hearing is probably your tranny clunking while shifting under a heavy load.CaptynJaneway said:Comin across this thread reminded me of a problem my tl has...not sure...but it doesnt jerk when accelerating. it only does this...knock when i put it in drive and immediately give it a lil gas.
just be on the safe side...ill put it in drive..wait for about 2 seconds...then give it gas.
is this the same problem?
And you should always run premium gas. It is worth it to pay $.20 more now per gallon than to have to pay more in labor and parts because of using lower grade fuel.
