Trouble with engine

My car turns on alright but whenever i put it on drive and step on the accelerator it delays and just revs the engine as if it were on neutral. it does the same thing when i put it on reverse.

Check the transmission fluid level. is it full? is it dark red or black? is it burn't or sharp smelling? you may have a burned up transmission if the fluid is full and it won't move. can you feel the gears being changed like a ratcheting of the shifter handle when moved from park to the desired gear? if not then you have some linkage problems and that can be repaired alot cheaper than a transmission. Good luck .... Scott

I have a ford focus 2008 sedan automatic. I get a transmission malfunction message.

Diagnostic Procedure Before Repair
Step 1 - Clear all DTC's with a engine scan tool (diagnostic trouble codes.) Visit - Scan PCM
Step 2 - Start the engine and observe the MIL, if it does not illuminate continue to next step (service engine soon or check engine light.)
Step 3 - Drive the vehicle while trying to maintain a constant throttle position as it accelerates up through all four gears. If the transmission is shifting properly, it should be in 4th gear by the time you reach 45 to 50 mph on level ground. Repeat this procedure from a standing start 3 to 5 times. Rescan the PCM for trouble codes, if none appear the problem could have been a onetime occurrence. If a trouble code has returned repair as needed and recheck system. Hope This Helps !!!

I was told my linkage cable between the steering column and transmission might be the reason my van won't accelerate

linkage cable only changes ratio selections
if it is faulty , it will be stuck in one gear
the reason it is not accelerating is because the accelerator pedal and the throttle control are not communicating with each other
run the fault codes to check which sensor is faulty or if any other sensor is responsible

My 2011 nissan maxima is having trouble accelerating. when i put it into drive, i need to almost floor the gas peddle to get going. car has regular oil changes (synthetic) and has 170K on it.

too serious a problem to let go un-diagnosed
pop into the service center for assessment

is the engine light on
that model has an electronic gas pedal sensor
I would start there

then if motor revs a lot and not go forward as it should
a transmission fault

Transmission hesitation

I suspect you have a clogged transmission filter. The problem could also be a bad fluid pump. These transmissions are designed to be 'disposable' meaning when issues such as these occur, it may be cheaper to replace the trans than to fix it. First I would have the transmission flushed, then have the filter changed. If the problem persists, then replacing it may be your only option.
Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!

Car has trouble starting again after being driven.

The very first thing you need done here is the computer tested for fault codes, one or more is set whenever the check engine light is turned on. Autozone and others do this for free. Ask for an OBD2 fault code test (1996 and newer models only)

After diagnosis my v8 740i bmw indicated the "variable valve gear guide sensor for bank 2 and variable valve gear learning stops necessary" currently it's difficult accelerating the engine. would...

You have a v8 with a "variable valve gear guide sensor" on each bank. The trouble code is telling you that bank#2 sensor is faulty, or its signal is not getting to the engine computer.

Consequently, when bank#1 adjusts the timing (under hard acceleration or higher revs), bank #2 is not getting adjusted.

If the variable valve timing is not being activated (low load, load revs) the engine will run more or less normally.

Get the car to the dealer. You risk MAJOR ENGINE DAMAGE if you keep driving it.
