Q: Q: The gears?

asked by on

The car runs, but when it hits a certain mph its starts to get shaky and we have to put it in 3rd gear. When we put it in reverse it will not go in reverse and sometimes still be in drive and will pull up forward. You also have to rev the engine a little to get it to start driving. Not to much but you still have to do it.
My car has an automatic transmission.
