Hey guys ,


ive got an interesting problem that ive never felt before on any car. Heres whats going on.  Yesterday while i was driving i tried to push the gas pedal down so it would upshift into 2nd gear and i got a clicking sound followed by brief hesitation.


Today took it out for a spin and out of no where when i applied any pressure to the gas pedal even starting out it 1st gear i would get a click followed my hesitation and this happened 3 times before i even shifted into 2nd gear. Is my transmission going out?   


Before i drove it this morning i was trying to adjust my idle , so i was messing around with the screw that sits next to the throttle body with a nut on it (5/16 wrench), after reading posts on here i guess i wasnt  supposed to touch that screw ,oops! So i will open up my throttle body and try and get the throttle plate as close as i can again. 


Any thoughts or suggestions?
