so on top of my other thread about the e brake. i noticed lately, that occasionally (not every time yet) that i park in my spot at my house, which is minor hill, i put the car in reverse, and just after getting out, the car is rolling back a tad, maybe an 1/8th of a turn in the wheels, 4 inches max?

i would assume this is transmission related? what is fatigued and causing this?

well if the motor mount is bad or tranny mount then when you put the wait of the car against it it will rock the engine slightly allowing the car to move...

a way to test this is pop the hood and have some one park the car like you normally do and watch the engine for movment as they release the break...

Here is a bit of a long shot...

Has the car seen a lot of wheel spin?
I killed my old 9-3s Trans this way.

However the trans didn't die immediately. For a about a month, it would roll back more then normal when parked in gear.

The diff pin wound up eating in to the carrier and allowed it to move back and forth about a 1/2 inch.

The engine mount's are a much easier and cheaper place to look though, and a whole lot more likely.

no the car has never ever seen wheel spin. stock power wise with sticky tires and never over 10psi, not even a downpipe.

although it does have 160k and with my luck i wouldnt be suprised if the gearbox decideds to tae a shit before i find a job.

it could be as he said, but the motor mounts and tranny mounts are a lot easyer to check
