Q: Changed transmission filter and now car stutters when accelerating from stop but is fine driving on highway

asked by on

I changed the transmission filter. Car now sometimes stutters/doesn’t respond correctly from a stop. Highway driving is fine. Added correct fluid/amount.

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It may take some time for the new fluid to disperse and you may have erratic shifting but any slippage may be worn clutches inside the transmission and need internal work.
