So my Hyundai Sonata has had this weird shifting business for the past couple weeks (definitely should have taken care of it sooner but I’ve just avoiding driving it in the mean time). Basically it’s best described as having the clutch be released quickly or slowly in a manual car except it’s an automatic. Every so often it will shift and after that it behaves like either the clutch was released quickly, and jerks, or very slowly so it feels like the clutch takes awhile to fully engage. I know that automatics don’t have clutches, this is just how I’m describing it.
I don’t know much about transmission so the question is whether this sounds familiar to anyone, possibly low fluids or something or if this sounds big and I should take it in asap. Before this started I took the car in for a some number point inspection and they told me that the transmission fluid was too full (Jiffy Lube’s fault if they were right) and they lowered it. It started a while after that so I don’t know which caused the problem.
Any help would be appreciated, I’d like to avoid the mechanic if I can but I suspect that won’t be the best route so fire away.
