I first suggest to check fluid levels and maintenance time. Sound like a torque converter or valve body solenoids problem.

Also scanned the transmission module, to search codes in order to know exactly this "check engine" code.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Focus Sputtering / Speedometer Needle Jumping

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

SOURCE: engine alarm light on and car jumpy and lacking acceleration

One easy thing to try is injector cleaner. Get Techron. Also if you can get the codes read people on this site can help with more info.
Other things that it could be are the cam position sensor, plug wires, the Ignition control module or perhaps a bad vacuum line. Check any that are between the air intake and fuel rails.

The codes will help to diagnose. Most auto parts stores will read them for free and reset the code collector so you can get a fresh start. If the problem persist the codes will reappear.

2006 Mercury Sable just stopped accelerating when driving and the transmission light came on. I put transmission fluid in and it still will not accelerate. Any suggestions


try running the fault codes to find the sensor/servo/ solenoid that is not working
if it drives but does not accelerate it could be a servo /solenoid or a TCM failure no communicating with the ecm due to bad harness connections or other wiring problem

The van feels jumpy when accelerating, however, it sounds like it is idling fine. All the fluids are where they are supposed to be.


This jumping could be in the transmission. Try some transmission additive. TranX, Lucas both are good. There are several parts in the transmission that can cause a jumping feel on ecceleration. All engaged by pistons that have seals . These additives are seal conditioners. You only need a pint.

could be a lot of things. I personally would start with your vacuum lines... check for a leak somewhere. You can do that by spraying carb cleaner (if motor tries to die, you found your leak), or it could be a sensor, likely idle air control, mas air, etc.)

You would have to repeat the problem with the scanner hooked up and someone who knows what he's doing watching it. If the check engine light came on then a code will be stored.

2002Honda civic ex jerks and hesitates when not accelerating


I would have the catylic convertor checked.
Then have the transmission check . I am guessing the transmission is automatic. The torque convertor could be shuttering when slowing down to a stop.
