Q: Car is giving me problems.

asked by on

Drives fine at cold start , after the vehicle gets warm it starts showing me problems , after shifting from 3rd gear the rpm goes up, makes an engine noise and doesn't respond to acceleration, then jerks as if something is getting back in place. And sometimes it feels like if the car is loosing power and goes into limp mode .Also after the car is warm it jerks bad when I move the selector from reverse to drive . Are all of these issues related ? My car has 160000 miles. My car has an automatic transmission.
