Sound like transmission. Maybe clutch cyliniod.

That’s what mine is doing! I know this post is 2 years old but my car does the exact same thing! I’m rattling my brain trying to find out why! Took mine to the mechanic and found out I had bad ignition coils and it’s still doing it! I have no idea what to do now, he’s saying it could now be a bad TPS. I really don’t want it to break down on me.
