Generally, if the engine is running and you give it gas but the car doesn't respond, you've got tranny troubles. Probably very expensive tranny troubles.
Yes indeed, very expensive transmission problems. I have a 99 Mercury Sable and only had it for 6 months used when i started having the same problem. First i thought, well i bought the car in Florida and moved to Ohio, so maybe being mid winter, the cold was just causing it to slip because cars get used to the way they are drivin even in environmentle circumstances. Well 3 weeks later i was paying out $1600 for a new transmission to be put in. If your car is having these problems, take it to a shop asap.....dont get stuck on the side of the interstate with the next exit being a town in ghettoville, usa!!!
Just a thought.....Transmission Fluid has leaked out, transmission filter is clogged or torque converter(front pump) went bad.
Perhaps you have not engaged the clutch? The accelerator is designed to increase the RPMs. If you provide no resistance it will rev until it explodes.
Could be several reasons but the first one that comes to my mind is a vacuum leak.
possibly dirty or defective idle control valve. Tried replacing this part but no luck still :( Did the same thing as before
Check the timing and check that the cable to the accelerator is adjusted correctly.
Depends on position of power switch in the console by the shifter....Also depends on vehicle speed and gear you are going into
probably need to adjust your valves
replace vehicle speed sensor on transmission....not an easy job due to limited room
you farted and it stinks alot
Your alternator maybe bad
The more you push on the accelerator the more you increase the fuel/air mixture to the engine which will cause the engine to turn more RPMs, thus propelling the vehicle at a faster speed.
There are eight actual shifting motions, and you can "split" the top four gears. Get to your desired RPMs before upshifting, then you can either float or double clutch into the next gear. For the splitter, you simply push it forward, let off the accelerator, pause until you feel it catch, then get back on the accelerator.
First, run a compression check. If that's not it it could be ignition or injectors.
