I can guess from what u said that u have or an aumatic gear box or a tiptronic gear box!anw i think u must get ur mechanic to check on the gear box..maybe its slepping..and when the motors gear are not in a good condition it will turn off..like taking ur foot off the cluch for example;)

Please Help!!! 1999 Mercury Sable doesn't seem to accelerate past first gear..engine revs up to very high rpms.


If the speedometer stops working the odometer stops also. Sounds like it is stuck in first gear. The RPM went up because the throttle was response to pedal but transmission not response. Check transmission fluid color. Whip off dipstick on a white paper towel look for gray if see any that is metal shavings and transmission is bad.

2008 hyundai accent clutch slipping, i think?


seems a bit early for clutch. how many k's? I would start by checking the intake tube for splits & security & airflow sensor. they will cause the engine to rev but no response (like a slipping clutch) so its manual right?

1997 Nissan Maxima Revs then dies.


This happened to me before. You probably need to replace your mass air flow.
