Engine cut out


Sounds like you may have fuel filter problem. you may want to check the pump and filters located in or near the fuel tank.
Go directly to the source ( Fuel Tank, Pump, Filters, Fuel Pressure Regulator and Injectors )
You may have water or grit in the fuel
Hope this helps

1995 Nissan Altima Stuck in First Gear


1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).

I have a 2001 2500 Dodge Ram Van with a 5.2 engine. If if do not accelerate hard, the transmission shifts fine. If I accelerate hard, the transmission seems to not want to shift until I relieve pressure...


On most of these type vehicles, with the heavy duty and lower geared transmissions this is normal, when accelerateing hard it will stay in lower gear longer...

What does the e s button do in the 93 vw passat


E for economy, and S for sport. The button allows you to switch from normal mode E economy, to S sport mode for better acceleration and quicker down-shifts when driving in a more agressive or performance manner. The S mode will make the transmission shift at higher revs before engaging the next gear, in order to give better response. Likewise when you enter a corner and let off the throttle (gas) , most transmissions will often change to a higher gear. This is not ideal for spirited driving, because you want the revs up a bit and to stay in the lower gear to accelerate out of the corner after you have cleared the apex. For everyday driving the sport mode keeps the car from up-shifting and down-shifting too much in traffic or on windy roads etc. The emphasis is on performance rather than ultimate fuel economy in Sport. Try it out next time you feel sporty and fell the difference. But for best gas mileage leave the car in E mode for economy.

Overdrive button


from the car manual:

Tum the overdrive switch on for good fuel
economy and smooth driving. If engine braking
is needed in the "D" range or if repeated
upshifting and downshifting between the 3rd
and 4th gear is needed when climbing a
gentle slope, it is recommended that the
overdrive switch be tumed off. Tum the
overdrive switch back on immediately afterward.

When the overdrive switch is tumed on, the
transaxle will automatically upshift to the second,
third and overdrive gears. When the overdrive
switch is tumed off, the transaxle will not
upshift to the overdrive gear. For normal driving,
the selector lever should be left in the "D"
position and the overdrive switch tumed on.
If you need to accelerate rapidly, press the
accelerator pedal all the way to the floor. The
transaxle will automatically shift to a lower gear,
depending on the vehicle speed and load.
