SOURCE: My 2003 Chevy Malibu suddenly lost power climbing

Could either be the ignition system - ie, coil packs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or bad gas. Was it sputtering?

SOURCE: Missing and backfiring during acceleration and climbing hills.

Could be vapor lock in the fuel system. Next time it does this, stop and try removing the fuel filler cap... Hope this helps...;-)

Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Tried to get on the freeway in my 2002 lincoln ls gave the car more gas to speed up and transmission did not responed. pulled over and now the car won't move. when I put it in drive I can feel it


check your transmission fluid level. It is better not to force it just load it to a recovery service track and take it to a qualified garage where they will check the pressure and serviceability of your automatic gear box. Looks like you have a problem with the gear box, is slipping on acceleration.

06 titan truck won't accelerate even when the gas


If the engine RPM's increase when the gas pedal is floored, you have a transmission problem or a problem with your shift cables.

If the engine RPM's don't change when the gas pedal is floored, you have a throttle pedal cable problem or throttle body problem.

You will need an experienced mechanic to diagnose this problem as it is very dangerous to operate the vehicle under these conditions.

Gas peddle won't produce rpm's. kind of a rough idle. Vehicle will move when put into gear and brake released but pressing gas does nothing.. (automatic)


did you check and see if the cable snapped for the accelerator, have someone push the peddle a few times and you watch to see if the accelerator lever that the cables connect to move if not they obviously broke and need to be replaced

No revs when depressing the accelerator


check the gas cable at the throttle body under the hood, it is possible the cable has either broken or become dis connected. remove the air cleaner and look into throttle body and find the rotating shaft that opens and closes the plate inside throttle body. 1) when you rotate does plate move? 2) is there cable attached to pulley? 3) when someone steps on pedal does the plate move? 1 not likely issue, 2 might be issue reattach cable to pulley, 3 pedal does not move pulley cable disconnected at pedal reconnect there or cable is broken replace cable. if non of these then throttle position sensor may be bad and check or replace
