    im not sure what it is, but to me it sounds like a bad torque converted, staying locked when it shouldnt

    someone else should be able to chime in
    It's Gumby's fault.

    also sounds like a low idle. When my idle is slow it will make the car surge and jump. If I hold the brakes down it will vibrate and shake

    when you let go of the brake pedal, does the car feel like its trying to go, like, move rather fast at idle? give you a nice clunk when going into gear?

    i dont think so. but one thing i find odd is that if im just slowly getting up to speed when i get about 35 it seems to get way less drag and starts to going faster without me pushing harder. ill have to see tomarrow but i dont think its my idle
