Transmission balks when I step on gas from a stop. Finally catches a split second later. Dangerous at intersections.
Then take it in for transmission service ASAP.
Are you sure it’s the transmission and not the engine hesitating?
Nope. Engine revs and then transmission catches with a jerk.
Okay, first check your transmission fluid. Is it low? Dark in color? Smell burnt? If it’s low but okay otherwise, check your owner’s manual or call a Lexus/Toyota dealer to find out what type of transmission fluid it needs and add some until it’s full when warm. If that solves the problem you’ve dodged a bullet. Then have your transmission serviced. Otherwise you need transmission work.
Thanks, Dave. I’ll give it a shot. John
