Having problems with your 2004 Chevrolet Impala ?

My 04 impala slams or shifts hard when i start out from a complete stop or if im slightly rolling??? I just bought the car and it has 93,000 on it. According to the carfax the tranny was flushed at 70,000. Is this something major?? an adjustment or something?? Im going to take it to a tranny shop flushing it , put in a new filter and use Amsoil synthetic tranny fluid.

Answers :

On every automatic transmission. you have whats called a tourque converter. If a flush and tranny fluid fill did not work before its not gonna work again. Your tourqe conver has gone bad or for some odd reason become detatched from the transmission housing. One thing that i know with all my experience you should never have your transmission flushed, especially more than once. Replacing your fluid is one thing but a tranny flush is just one thing auto manufactures should have never come up with. Also Check to see where the flush was done at. If it was done at a Jiffy lube, i doubt it was even done. BIG SCAM WITH JIFFY LUBE AND THERE TRANNY FLUSH SERVICE (check youtube for news reports). Now expect to pay a pretty penny for this becuase you have an automatic transmission. Normally on a manual, it would be your throwout bearing, but becuase the impala was never released with a manual tranny at least in that generation, your kinda stuck with taking it to a service shop. GO TO A GM SHOP. and ask them to fill the tranny with a special tranny fluit called DEXRON VI ONLY. Dexron is the only fluids that meets GM's standards.
