This vehicle is having some transmission shifting issues. Don’t know if it is worth paying to have it fixed. It seems to not fully disengage when stopping and sometimes takes a bit to re-engage when starting to move.
When asking if the vehicle is worth fixing or not there are a few things to consider. Like what was your plan for the vehicle before the issue arose? Drive it till it breaks? Your there. Is it a family inheritance that carries sentimental value? Then money is no object. Based on resale value one must consider other factors such as the condition of the interior and exterior as well as potential mechanical issues lurking in the wake.
If I had to guess what is wrong with it without looking at it, My guess would be a faulty solenoid. However I would start by checking the fluid level of the transmission. Take note of the color and if it is burnt looking a complete rebuild may be necessary. I should also note that some have been successful with simply changing the transmission fluid and filter. This may be something to consider trying if it is in the budget.
Hydraulic Control System
Many new transmissions are electronically controlled. On these models, electrical solenoids are used to better control the hydraulic fluid. Usually, the solenoids are regulated by an electronic control module.
