Can you suggest how I might fix the problem on my CRV automatic 2001 as it is very jerky when moving off and needs very delicate and gentle close control to make it smooth?

I am not a mechanic but I do own a 2000 CR-V on which I do a little of my own work. From your description it isn't clear just what might be causing the 'jerky' feeling but before you consider the transmission, I would recommend having your motor mounts checked. A broken motor mount could be a possible cause the jerky movement you are experiencing. If it is not a bad motor mount then I'm sorry to tell you that you might be looking at some transmission work. Just how expensive that might be can only be determined by a competent repair shop. There is no "home" remedy that will solve a transmission problem.

What are the symptoms of automatic transmission failure?

I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan SE, While I am driving things are alright, but when slowing down to a stop the transmission downshift late. What causes thisand is there anything I should be concerned about. Recently, I put some more transmission fluid in . could I have overfilled it?This should help:Complete automatic transmission failure is obvious because the car will not move at all when shifted into forward or reverse. Usually the symptoms of impending automatic transmission failure are not quite as dramatic, and can be inspected by a mechanic to determine if the transmission needs replacing or if there is any chance the problem can be repaired.Delayed ShiftingOne common symptom of automatic transmission problems is delayed shifting when the vehicle is cold, particularly for reverse or first gear. Loss of One GearSometimes one gear will go out entirely while the others still function. If fourth or reverse gear fails, for instance, the vehicle at least can be driven to a shop. Unusual Shifting SpeedsShifting may take place at unusual speeds, earlier or later than it should. The speed where shifting takes place also may keep changing. Noise and JerkingAny noise while shifting is a symptom of automatic transmission failure, and so is rough, jerky shifting. Odd MovementIf the vehicle tries to move while in park or neutral, it most likely has automatic transmission failure. Shift Lever IssuesIf the shift lever is difficult to move, this indicates transmission problems as well.

What cut of meat is jerky made from?

Jerky can be made from any type of meat. I've eaten turkey jerky, deer jerky, pork jerky, beef jerky, buffalo jerky and a couple of others. Jerky is basically just dried meat. Many people make their own by laying the strips of meat on a cookie sheet, basting it with teriyaki and drying it at a low temp in the oven. It can also be dried in the sun if there is a way to keep critters off of it. Just look up jerky recipes in your favorite search engine.
