Tranny trouble

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.

What is the problem with a 1998 911 Carrera if the RPMs are revving up unusually high when you hit the accelerator?

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.

What's wrong when your RPMs are to high?

Could be several reasons but the first one that comes to my mind is a vacuum leak.

When you push the accelerator down all the way on a automatic 1999 rodeo it sometimes changes to the next gear at 4500 rpms and sometimes at 5800 rpms?

Depends on position of power switch in the console by the shifter....Also depends on vehicle speed and gear you are going into

What makes a car accelerate?

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.

What is wrong with a 1986 Trans Am that makes a light tick or knock in the engine when rpms get higher?

Your alternator maybe bad

How do you shift 13speed truck trailer?

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.

What is wrong with a 1997 Integra LS that bucks in lower RPMs and feels like it is not getting enough power but you know it is getting enough fuel?

First, run a compression check. If that's not it it could be ignition or injectors.

What makes an automatic transmission change down when the accelerator is depressed?

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.

What can happen if you have a bad idle air control motor?

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

How do you shift a eaton fuller 18 speed?

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.

Could be a leaking fuel injector.

Why does my explorer run rough while idling?

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.

97 galant is idling at 200 RPM what could cause that to happen?

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.
