My 02 lesabre is jerking and reving too high

I just bought an 02 lesabre 2 weeks ago, and it's jerking into gear when i release the gas and when i accelerate, the rpms are going higher than normal and it has a loud revving noise, but its not keeping up,is this the tranny? or something to do with the the fuel intake? pls help thx So, my 2001 kia is doing the same thing. I bought it over 2 years ago and have has it looked at by 20 or so mechanics who have all found nothing wrong with it. So as of right now it's sitting in my driveway as of a year ago because it's unsellable.Any advice? Have you found the problem?

Starts in a wrong gear (4th gear) and jerks before it go


Run fault codes and look for a faulty TCM unit. THE TCM will also put on the engine light and affect the speedometer operation . Running the fault codes will also identify the sensor associated with the ABS unit.. Seeing as to how you have just bought the car (possibly from a corner used car dealer) I would advise a pressure test done on the transmission to check for the condition of the transmission and have an oil change and the bands and clutch packs adjusted

My car will not shift up gears


the point is that there is an onboard reporting system that you can have the fault codes read from
That report indicates exactly the area if the fault and saves money
so have the codes read at any parts shop or autozone for free and then have that only fixed

I have a 2005 volvo xc90 t6 that is jerking when accelerating and in idle. It doesn't so it every time but is steadily increasing and began about 2 weeks ago. Check engine light will blink when on...


A blinking check engine light is the warning of an engine misfire that can cause damage to the catalytic converter. Check car by diagnostic tool and keep car well.
