I would like to know if any of you can tell me what may be wrong with my transmission. Whenever it shifts gears while accelerating, the transmission jerks into the next gear. Can anyone help in what may be the problem. Thank you.

Rear torque converter seal, cooler lines, modulator, axle seals, side pan

I am not 100 percent sure that OBD1 systems will show codes for a 92, but you are seeing roughness in shifting, consistent with a default line pressure. It could also be a modulator vacuum problem on that tranny or a bad CV axle or engine mount banging on shifts.

Default line pressure is a P076 on my 95 OBD1.

WARNING: I'm a total car newbie, don't be surprised if I ask a stupid question! Just trying to learn.
