Jerking, check engine light and d light blinking

All of a sudden, my 06 civic starting acting up last night:

I was stopped at a light and i feel my car jerk forward. I thought it was the person behind me that hit me and got pissed and moved forward a little. At another light, it did the same thing.

Then on the way back, it started doing the same jerking when i accelerate from a complete stop and it changes gears.

Its like 300 miles past due for oil change but i dont think thats it. This is a 2006 Honda Civic with automatic transmission. Can someone help me with this?

Also, i bought the car at 33k miles so im not sure if the previous owner did the 30k maintenance.


As of today, this is what has happened:

I turned on the car this morning and the D light on dashboard started blinking and check engine light came on. No jerking so far.
Ok so after i went to a garage who sent me to a transmission specialist who said i have to leave the car with them. I cant afford to leave it with them for a day. The guy drove it but it drove fine and the D light stopped blinking when i got to their place.

I went to Autozone and i restarted and the check engine light went off! Car is driving find and no lights are on but they pulled the P0847 code which means it could be open or short circuit condition, faulty pressure switch or hydraulic system failure.

Where do i go from here? The dealership would be my last resort because I cant afford it and I heard they charge 80 bucks for a diagnostic. I also wanted to add that the gas cap was loose before i left my house today and i could smell gas. so i unscrewed and screwed it back on tightly.

Can someone help me?

Da KLEEN WUN!
Could be one of your vacum sensors. Same thing happened to my friends rsx. If everything is fine now just keep everything maintain.

Honda Civic 2008 D drive blinking, jerking, engine light on.

I have the same problem with my Honda Civic 2008. I hope this is not due to transmission failures.

Problems: Engine Check Light goes on, D drive blinking, Car jerk after the car stop (brake) or slow down.

If you know exactly what the problem is, please let me know so that I do have to waste my money on checking, repairing from place to place.

Thank you.

Hydraulic failure, it is your trans. Sorry to break it to you but if you have any trans work done you definitely wont have your car back in a day. Take it to a reputable trans shop and hope for a low number.

EDIT: I see your in ATL, Im an auto tech student and one of my teachers is a trans wiz, and owns his own shop. if youd like i can shoot you his info. Hes a good guy, ASE Master Tech, and maybe if you drop my name he will cut you some slack. shoot me a pm if your interested.

D drive blinking honda civic, jerk

So, it's a Hydaulic failure? I will take my car to trans shop today. Does it cost much money for repairing this problem? I am living in Toronto, Canada.

Thank you.

I was referring to the OP, I didnt look at the date though. In his post he says that he pulled a code and it was labeled as hydraulic failure, or faulty pressure switch. Id assume that since your having the same type of problem it is the same thing. I can guarantee you that it is a transaxle problem, idk what what it is though. It could be many things, Yes trans repairs are expensive. You have to pay the R&R guy to take it out and put it back in, your going to pay for diag time, and your going to pay the builder to fix it (if its an internal problem). Maybe you will get lucky and its something with the PCM that can be flashed or something, idk.

Why did you even bother posting that? What a worthless response.

because how does telling him to go to honda and ***** help him? Honda isnt just going to fix your car everytime you have a problem, you dont even know if he still has a warranty.. Also he said, I dont want to waste my time going place to place. I guarantee you he is going to waste time by going to honda.
