acura Integra transmission

I have a 94 Acura Integra LS, Automatic transmission. 92k miles.
The problem is that when I switch from "P" or "N" to "D4" or "R" the car jerks,
and the transmission (i suppose) makes a strange noise like a knock. The only
way i can ammeliorate this "quake" of the car is not to push the brake when
shifting.
Please tell me if this is a serious problem or if it can be fixed under 1000$

Check the engine and transmission mounts.If your idle speed is too high it can cause the same symptom.I've been on this planet for almost 45 years and this is the first time I've seen the word ameliorate(correct spelling) in my life and hope it is the last.I couldn't even find it in Websters dictionary.However if you feel the need to use those type of words please do as I can "tolerate" it.

I see...

Thanks for your suggestions. I will have a mechanic check the mounts. It is
true, with the idle speed. What happens is that when the engine is cold it idles higher, and the shock is stronger, but when it warms up, the idle goes at about 800-900 rpm, and the shock is much softer.
My greatest fear is that I'll have to replace the transmission and that's expensive.

I'll let you know about the mounts, and sorry for my "inexistent" english words, but I'm not an anglophone.

Thank you very much.
