You need to take this to a competent car repairer. It sounds like the fault may be one of the sensors or the mass flow meter. There is nothing you can do to fix this yourself.

Vw jetta 98 revs shoots up after driving for a few kms

You will need to have the trany checked it may be low on fluid, theres a way of checking the fluid, i would have a job check it or if it a standard shift then the clutch may be slipping and need to be replaced but if its automatic trany then i would have the fluid checked i have run into this problem a few times and it was due to a leak a small leak in the trany oil and when the fluid got low the trany would slip and in some cases not shift or move. hope this is helpful, good luck.

Car would not go into reverse. then could only drive it in 5th gear. then car began smoking. what is the problem?

check your trany oil, it may have a leak,that might be the smoking and if fluid is low the might be wht trany is actting up if its not the fluid then it needs rebuilding that expensive $$$$$$$$, good luck and hope it low on trany oil.

Hi. Thanks for looking at this for me. I have a 2004 Yukon and the transition from first to second gear has been slipping - engine revs and it takes a second for the shift to occur. My local transmission...

no belts in transmission 2-4 band slipping if its a 4l60e will need overhaul you just dont replace band you have to check out why it failed what about the drum the band wraps around should be check for wear the worn lining from band went some wear did he open filter when pan was down is that $1200 a guantee price whats the warranty is it a year or 12000 miles I'd get another opinion
