    Try to change the gears manually. Meaning put it all the way into first and change to second at about 10 mpg then 3rd at 20. If it doesnt stall out that way it will need a tranny shop. That will tell you that when in automatic the transmission is trying to start out in to high of a gear.

Replaced fuel pump but still revs up the engine and shuts off?

There is gas, the starter is fine, the battery is good. It doesn't matter what temperature the engine is or how long between starts but if I rev up the engine while cranking it starts okay. Rarely I have to rev at stops or the idle drops too low and stalls. If I punch the gas very quickly it revs and drops quickly and then stalls. Starting has a success rate of about 50% without revving. If it stalls, I must rev the engine to start.

Mazda tribute revs to 4200 misfires

Is it misfiring or is the high rev limiter kicking in? Mazda's are not high rev engines even with the ford engine in it! mine idles at 750 +/- and hits 2500 at 75 MPH if I punch it it will go to 3g but not much higher.

Good luck

Won't go reverse

If your fluid levesl are OK, usually turns out to be a broken rev band. You can check if the band is broke by dropping the pan and taking the low rev servo out which is the 4 bolts that are the square cover inside the pan. With the servo out you can take a screwdriver or punch and push it thru the hole and see if the band will spring back or if the band just pushes closed or if you can even catch the strut at all.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Runs and idles but dose not rev up, when do dieds out

Looks like it's sucking air soemwhere. Try using a separate container to **** the diesel and see if there is any difference. Otherwise try leaving the car idling for 10-15 mins as sometimes air trapped in the pump can be very hard to bleed.

No pick up

Have you changed the fuel filter lately. Sounds like you have a fuel restriction. You could have a clogged catalytic converter. When the car is in park rev the engine and listen. Does it sound like the exhaust is having a hard time getting out? Hope this helps.
