Common Fixes for a Transmission that Jerks or Hesitates

Here are a few common reasons why your transmission may shift erratically, jerk or hesitate.
  • Low fluid level
  • Depleted fluid frictional properties
  • Poor cold-temperature fluidity

Start with the easiest fix
There’s an old adage when troubleshooting: start with the least expensive and simplest fix. In this case, check the transmission fluid level first. Low fluid can prevent the transmission from shifting properly. It’s important to find out why the fluid is low and fix any problems. It could be a leaky seal or other mechanical defect. Otherwise, adding new fluid won’t ultimately solve the problem.
Worn fluid equals poor shift quality
Transmission fluid that has aged and lost some of its frictional properties can also lead to poor shift quality. When your vehicle’s computer tells the transmission to shift gears, hydraulic pressure (provided by the fluid) squeezes a series of plates together inside a clutch pack to connect the engine to the transmission output shaft and route power to the wheels. The fluid’s frictional properties play a vital role in ensuring the clutch plates bind together properly and gear shifts occur seamlessly. Over time, the frictional properties of the fluid can degrade, leading to elongated, jerky or inconsistent shifts. In this case, it’s time for a fluid change. How do you know for sure the fluid is worn? The only definite way to find out is to conduct used fluid analysis. However, fluid that smells burnt or appears dirty is likely due for a change. It’s best practice to change the fluid before the frictional properties are depleted and poor shifting is experienced since poor shifts can cause the clutches to wear more rapidly and lead to bigger issues that need mechanical repairs.
Be aware of “adaptive” transmissions
One interesting note affects newer vehicles equipped with adaptive transmissions. These units “learn” your driving habits and the characteristics of the fluid to adjust shifts accordingly. As the fluid loses its frictional properties, the computer compensates and adjusts transmission performance. If you’ve recently changed your fluid, the computer may still operate as if old fluid is installed, causing poor shift quality. In these cases, keep driving and eventually the computer will “relearn” your driving habits and the behavior of the new fluid and adjust accordingly. The problem was significant enough on some 2012-2013 Ford F-150s to cause Ford to issue a technical service bulletin (TSB 13-1-10).
Your transmission fluid’s frictional properties are vital to best performance
Comparison of Frictional Properties - ATF
To demonstrate its outstanding performance, AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid was tested in taxi cabs operating in the intense heat of Las Vegas. First, the frictional properties of new fluid were tested. Then, after more than 180,000 miles of work in a fleet of taxis, the fluid was tested again. As shown in the graph, the fluid maintained nearly identical frictional properties to new fluid after 180,000 miles of severe service. That translates into solid, confident shifts day after day and long transmission life.
Cold weather can reduce shift quality
When the temperature drops, transmission fluids with poor cold-flow properties can thicken and cause elongated and hard shifts until the fluid has warmed up enough to flow properly. Switching to a high-quality synthetic transmission fluid will help. Synthetics don’t contain waxes, as conventional fluids do, so they remain fluid at lower temperatures for improved shifts during cold weather.
The best transmission fluid available won’t fix a broken transmission. But using high-quality synthetic transmission fluid can help improve shift quality and maximize transmission life.

Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Massachusetts

Most of the one million whale watchers along the East Coast launch from Stellwagen each year

Stellwagen BankA breaching humpback whale tail in the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary (NOAA)

What You’ll Find

Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary is one of the top whale watching destinations in the world. This 842-square-mile (638-square nautical-mile) protected area accounts for about 80 percent of the whale watching along the East Coast. One of the many whales you’ll find here is the humpback which returns every summer to feast on sand lance (a type of fish commonly called “sand eel”) and to teach their young how to hunt.
Here you can see the newly restored Charles W. Morgan; the world’s only remaining wooden whaler, the last of an American whaling fleet and a National Historic Landmark. Built in 1841, the Morgan embarked on 37 multi-year voyages over a span of 80 years. Today the Morgan is docked at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, is open to visitors and sails as an ambassador for all whales and for ocean conservation worldwide.
Stellwagen Bank is one of 14 sites in the National Marine Sanctuary System in the United States.

Getting There

Stellwagen is located offshore at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay between Cape Ann and Cape Cod National Seashore. It is in the southwest corner of the Gulf of Maine and 25 miles east of Boston.
The headquarters offices are located in Scituate, Massachusetts. Take a New England road trip or fly into Boston's Logan Airport to reach the sanctuary visitor centers. You’ll have to go on a boat ride to participate in sanctuary activities like whale watching, fishing and diving, which can be accessed from many nearby ports, including Provincetown, Plymouth, Gloucester and Boston.

Make Sure You

Experience close encounters with whales, respectfully and safely. NOAA partners with commercial whale watching companies participatingparticipating participating in the Whale Sense Program which recognizes companies committed to responsible whale watching practices.
Shipwreck divers can explore more than 50 sites within the sanctuary. Check our Underwater Graveyard go list for more amazing places that feature our nation’s maritime history.

Don’t Forget

Pack for changing New England weather. Summertime and fall are gorgeous here—but the weather can, at times, be unpredictable. Bring waterproof raingear and pack clothes that you can layer. Help protect the sanctuary by practicing good ocean etiquette. Use these tips for whale watching to help you enjoy your visit. Learn how to treat the ocean and how to interact with wildlife so we can protect this delicate ecosystem.

Did You Know?

The World Wildlife Fund identified Stellwagen as one of the top 10 whale watching sites in the world. During summer, humpback whales delight watchers with acrobatic displays, graceful dives and active feeding behaviors. You can see finbacks, the largest of the common local species and second largest animal on the planet regularly. While the humpback and finback are endangered species, the minke whale is more plentiful worldwide. The minke is hunted today by whaling nations.

Did You Know?

In 1845, it took six months to get a message from the east coast of the United States to California. By the late 1850s nearly half a million people had migrated west and wanted to get up-to-date information across the country. To keep the mail moving quickly and steadily, the Pony Express established relay stations where riders would switch to fresh horses every 10 to 12 miles (16-19 km). They utilized existing stage stations on the eastern end of the route, but needed to build new stations in remote areas across the Great Basin. As the company was established, 400 to 500 mustang horses were purchased, 200 men were hired to manage the stations, and 80 riders signed on to begin the run of the Pony Express.
Mark Twain, in his book "Roughing It," describes his encounter with a Pony Express rider while traveling west by stagecoach from Missouri:
"He rode a splendid horse that was born for a racer and fed and lodged like a gentleman; kept him at his utmost speed for ten miles, and then, as he came crashing up to the station where stood two men holding fast a fresh, impatient steed, the transfer of rider and mail-bag was made in the twinkling of an eye, and away flew the eager pair and were out of sight before the spectator could get hardly the ghost of a look."
