2007 s60 2.5T starts jumping on first gear. Whenever I come to a complete stop and start accelerating, car jumps or tug on first gear. Could this be the transmission going bad ? Thanks for any advice.

First check would be the upper and lower engine supports. The lower one in particular is weak and breaks.

Here's a way to make it more secure and save some $$ in the process. I did this (and the upper mount) on both the cars in my sig and it fixed this and other transmission shift issues. It will also usually cause what is called the 'garage shift' - where when moving from N to D or R to D (like leaving a garage from sitting), you will hear a "clunk."

Post #30 here gives a nice DIY fix for the lower mount/support:

I replaced 3 of 5 engine mounts ( upper engine torque mount, transmission torque mount, passenger side lower engine mount) and it seem to improve the problem of car jumping. I'll replace the last 2 engine mounts too.
