Acceleration difficulties. This problem has continued for about four years now. Puegot service most unsatisfactory. Was even suggested that it was time for a new car!

most problems come from the cam and crank sensor, these control the engine, that intern controls the auto box, there is also a speed sensor on the auto box this controls gear change and works with the abs and road speed sensor work from the abs, 3-5 then drops can be the sensor not reading correctly as 2-3 is safe mode, these sensors can last a few years but if older than 5 years and depending on miles or engine use they will need changing as the engine heats up and cools down. auto box sensor is located on the auto box. most gear changing problems are down to this or the gear oil needs changing. you can buy a live data reader cheap these days that will work with your model these are handy as you can connect it and read what the ecu is doing and record the live data to find the correct problem, you may have a problem but its still within the promoters for the ecu settings and not register a fault. hope this info helps you.

Is it normal for the revs to stay up when changing gear in a 2002 4x4 3.0L turbo diesel navara?

do they revs drop off when taking pressure off accelerator pedal when out of gear? if only staying high during gear change it would suggest a worn clutch friction/pressure plate so the engine isn't slowing down when clutch is depressed .I'd also have the OBD codes read to see if there is a sensor/switch at fault , but sounds like the clutch to me

Automatic shudders on some gear changes.

This car has both options of auto transmission plus manual gear **** so the only reason it can shudder when the clutch is not fully released and thus takes some time, that's when it shudders, but on accelerating this will not happen cos the centripetal clutch has enough torque such that the clutch is pressed hard to the cam & therefore no shuddering. On cruising speed the probability of clutch slipping making the car shudder. Thus changing the clutch assembly ought eliminate this problem....sodeep

Thud noise / jolt when transmission.......

Yes, I would get the transmission checked it sounds like it maybe getting ready to go out. Take the dipstick out & smell the fluid to see if it smells burnt...Hope this helps..

Can't find where to check Auto.Transmission level.

Try changing the oil and filter. If that doesn't help, try the speed/shift sensor, or do that first, it's up to you.

Grinding sound on pressing clutch in at high revs

The grinding sound may be a throw out bearing or the pilot bearing. The sticking throttle problem sounds like a linkage or cable binding up from possibly damage due to the impact from the accident.

Hi, 96 vs v6 commodore.when changing between park & reverse car revs drop down as if going to stall but doesnt,and same for putting it in drive.I have changed the I.A.C motor problem still there

Look for vacuum leaks had a similiar problem in my car. a small split in a hose can cause havoc, and is usually only noticeable at low revs, like changing gears in an auto and sitting at a set of traffic lights.

It can be a long process checking all the hoses but it will give you a good look round the engine.
