When was the last time you serviced your brakes?

What does this have to do with brakes?
He said that the car shakes when he presses the gas then lets off and presses again. I cant imagine his brakes sticking to the rotors lol.

This is getting scary. We've gotten to the (low) point on this forum that even you seem to have more automotive knowledge than some of these pinheads. Almost like an alternate universe.

Other things can happen to brakes then them just freezing to the rotor. There are springs and adjustments in there that can be loose or moving around making contact with rotor. Or it could be a total mess. I might have looked at the descriptoin of the problem in a different way then you have. Maybe we'll get a better description soon

Which is exactly why you should have offered no advice or ideas until we have that further information. On the other hand, if it was a braking issue, why doesn't it manifest itself when stopping? Didn't think of that did you?

The most important thing you need to take away from this situation is, or at least was, contained in your own profile. "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt". Words you should live by.

Anywhere in the description does it say where the noise is coming from? Other than the gas pedal comment what makes you think its the transmission? A lot of things can grind on a car.

Is there anywhere in my post that says I think it's the transmission, or that I think it's anything in particular? The answer is absolutely not. Unlike you, I'm smart enough to have information before making a decision. Read my last post for some words you need to take to heart, pinhead.

I try my best . It might be something in the trans? Perhaps something sticking or not connecting properly due to a lack of fluid?

It could be any number of things. As we've already determined, there simply isn't enough information to make even a reasonable WAG.
