hey guys, when i start my car up, right after it starts it jumps a little bit. Not to the point of where car moves from where it is, just a little jolt. What is that?

If u need me to go into more detail lemme know

Thx Mike

I'm sure it's an automatic. You need a trans service and a band adjustment. It's lurching in park when cold waiting for fluid to get up.
