transmission

I have a '93 Pontiac Grand am SE V6. When I give it a little gas from a dead stop, the car hesitates then jerks forward. I'm not sure if it is a transmission problem with first gear, or a problem with the fuel injection. Any ideas? E-mail me with additional questions. Thanks.

Level and condition of the transmission fluid? Last time it was changed? Mileage on the vehicle?

Sounds like internal trans failure.

I had an oldsmobile v-6 that did this, the engine didn't increase RPM instantly when I hit the gas. Instead...it would hesitate, or bog if you will, then allofasudden....vrooom! I think it was a bad TPS, but I don't remember for sure. Oh- when the engine did finally "catch up"...It kinda slammed, as if doing a neutral drop. It only seemed to do it when trying to take off kinda quick, not slow and steady. Maybe this helps?

Not necessarily...but could be true.

Sounds like low fluid/internal failure problems.
