    Default Trans bangs into gear

    Hello guys
    So after a while of driving and come to a stop my 05 grand prix base model slams or bangs into gear after a few seconds of what feels like no power. Ive been told it can be a bad torque converter or sensor, the forward apply piston seal to a shift soliniod.
    I have put in the trans go shift kit in, changed the fliter and fuild as well as a bottle of lucas trans fix. It does seem to have helped but still does this and also happens from 1st to reverse but doesnt slam just shrudders a slight bit.

    Very common problem, the only way to truly fix it is an overhaul, unfortunately.


    These guys know their stuff, and this info has helped me out quite a bit when I first started having issues. Mine's been doing that for years, still does it occasionally. I know I need to dig in there and do a proper overhaul, but it's still going, so I'll take it.

    My advice is set up some form of fall-back plan and be prepared to get the trans fixed, but continue to drive it until it does break/becomes un-driveable. That's what I'm doing. There's quite a few options for a back-up plan, all depending on how mechanically inclined you are.

    Handling upgrades, go-slow parts, and an attitude.
