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
Depends on position of power switch in the console by the shifter....Also depends on vehicle speed and gear you are going into
Check the timing and check that the cable to the accelerator is adjusted correctly.
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
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.
Your alternator maybe bad
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.
When you press the accelerator, the engine wants to tach up right then and there... in the current gear the car is traveling in, it may not be possible without bogging the engine down, so the transmission is shifted down in order to accommodate the demand for increased RPMs while preventing the engine from bogging.
Your RPMs will go up and down lower with passing time then your vehicle will eventually start to shut off. You will only be able to drive it by keeping your foot on the accelerator
The shift pattern's based on the nine speed, with the addition of a splitter on the side. You'd go about your major shift motions the same as if it were a nine speed, and, when you use the splitter, you simply push the button forward or back (depending on you're shifting up or down), then you let off the accelerator, let the RPMs drop enough for it to catch the gear, then put your foot back into it. If you've missed the gear, you'll know it because your RPMs will spike when you put your foot back into the accelerator.
about 12, 13,000 RPMS.
lower rpms use less gas higher rpms have more power
did they want freedom
Could be a leaking fuel injector.
There could be any number of reasons but it could be the idle is set too low. The idle is the rpms that your engine runs at just sitting there without you stepping on the gas. It should be somewhere between 800 and 1000 rpms.
The throttle position sensor (tps) could make the rpms vary.
Obviously depends on RPMs. Normally 15-20psi at idle. Could be as high as 30-40psi when the engine is under high RPMs.
probably the jetting, but it could be many other things.
Could be in need of a tune up.
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
