my impala 2005 did the same thing had the trans rebuilt and the problem continued although not as much at first.i drove for another 8 months and it got worst as time went on. i put the car in for an oil change and they told me i needed a resingnater ahead of the muffler. replaced it and to my surprise my car ran perfect with no more back jarring movements. this cost about $150.00 but the surprising outcome was a big bonus. about 1 month now and still shifting and starting of as you expect a car to do.

#316 of 479 2006 Impala SS transmission issues
Jan 18, 2012 (11:14 am)
I have a 2006 Impala SS that is facing a second transmission replacement. I bought the car new in April 2007 and am the only driver. I currently have 112k miles on the car and can't imagine that it is at all acceptable that I am going to be on my third transmission! The first was replaced at 72k miles and thankfully (or so I thought at the time), I had purchased an extended warranty. Now, less than 2 years later and about 40k miles on the 'new' transmission, it is showing the same signs of slippage and hesitation from a stop that were showing when I had the initial transmission replaced. I called the dealer to inquire on my warranty for the transmission work and was told that since it was replaced under the warranty that they only cover it for 12 months or 12k miles. He went on to tell me that had I paid cash for the repairs, that the warranty would have been for 36 months or 100k miles! REALLY?!?! What sense does that make? So the only thing that I can come up with is that the GM warranties, purchased directly from GM, are a complete scam! The issue that I am having with the car is apparently a known issue as I have been on other sites and someone even posted an internal GM memo that references the known issue. The car is currently at the dealer for them to 'diagnose' the problem but since it is doing the exact same thing as the last time, I am not backing down. There is no reason that a car with 112k miles on it should have already gone through two transmissions! I am a loyal GM owner with not other cars in my home since 1995 but this just may be the last one........

Thanks for the information.
Will try the exhaust resonator.
Other people on the internet say that their resonator had rusted out or had a hole in it, too.
BF said that makes a lot of sense.
A hole in the resonator would let out too much exhaust at once.
The part costs $50 bucks.

I have a 2006 Impala also with the similar problem. i dont feel the transmission is out or needs replacing. i fear that solenoids need replacing, flushing transmission, changing transmission filter, and finaly checking computer. now i am not a professional but i do not want to spend several thousand dollars so i am just going to do all this myself... the transmissions i think were built better in late 90's and i think they fit this car.. i had a 97 gtp and put that transmission in a 04 Impala and worked pefect. ..
my car does the following. On dash does not show what gear i am in at all not even parking. does not accelerate normal and i must press more on gas to accellerate and pretty much force the car into gears(this is not too difficult)..
if you fixed your car let me know i'm barely starting to fix mine this week and i'll post what i found out as all above so far is my intuition and what i have gathered from other posts ..

i have a 2005 Chev Impala. I got it in 2006. Not long after I got the car I noticed the transmission was jolting and slipping at times. the car was still under warranty at the time. I had the transmission rebuilt. about a year later I had it serviced because i noticed the slippage again. Now I am afraid that I am going to have to have the transmission rebuilt for the second time. It is definitely slipping and jolting hard again sometimes when I stop and pull off. I have no warranty now. I am really disappointed, I like the size of the impala, but after reading all the problems here even with the later models, i don't think I will be getting another one. there is definitely something wrong with these cars. I also have started to smell gas sometimes when I crank the car up. I have had it checked by the gm dealer and other mechanics, they can't find any reason I may be smelling gas

i had a 2008 impala at 40,000 it started acting up when i would come to a stop then try to take off it would rev up like I had it neutral then take off after being in the shop 7 times the fixe it turns out it was a pressure valve not reading pressure right so it was fine for about 18 months the the trans locked up a different problem so its gone.

I just had the samething happen to my 07 SS, started to slip a little then just completetly went out, when you put it in gear no movement at all. had it towed to the dealer, lucky its still under the power train warranty (89,000) miles on it. Waiting to see whats the outcome will be, hate to do it but I think this will be my last American car, not to mention the third set or rear tires in a the last 20 thou miles.

same thing with my 03 impala. the P0742 DTC is a torque converter solenoid, which is causing the bucking/ low rpm take off's
