See if you guys can help me with these two or if you are also experieceing the same problems:

1.) When the car shifts to its final gear at around 35 to 40 MPH, It seems to jerk into the fourth gear. Had a Rebuilt tranny put into it a few months ago and it has been doing this ever since. In fact it did it with the old tranny as well. The installer said he cant do much about it.

2.) Sewcond item is that when I put the car in Drive. The display in the info. display does not shoe D a few of the times. It just stays blank. SO in stead of it saying "ED" it says "EX" X=blank.

If I jiggle the shifter it displays the D. Is this detramental to the tranny cuz its not completely in Drive mode properly?

TIA
