VN Spack S1 Auto
Hi
Gota vn s1 auto
-In the mornigs it takes a few seconds to engage D or R and wehter cold or not it always gos into gear with a cluck (whole car moves).
-When driving sometimes it changes with a bit of a jerk, sometimes from 2-3 it kinda grinds a bit and sometimes its really smooth.
-When I plant it it changes around 4500-5000rpm and is ALWAYS really smooth.

Is this normal and also would fluid and filter change help.
also i know one of the transmision mounts needs replacing is this related and is it easy to do.

soz for the long post but jus curious thanks.

could have wrong trans fluid in there too. if you put the wrong type in there they act like a b*tch sometimes. same as not having enough

I also own a VN s1 and i also have the same problem when my car is cold it takes awhile for it to click into D or R. But when its warm its perfect and no clunking.
It is due for a oil change BAD so that might be the cause.
Change your oil and see how it goes from there

a service is best suited then they can check the components for were ect
and tell you what is needed but im sure a service would make a hell of a diffrence

Yeah a service is the best thing you can do.
But if you are low on cash then try and do as much things your self before you take it in i say.
