I had to have a sensor in my transmission replaced...cost me $17. Maybe you have the same problem. I took it to an auto parts store because I was on the highway and was not able to get the car home to my mechanic. The guy at the parts store hooked my car to the computer and told me what the code meant.

It has been doing great but one day last week I drove it down the road and at 30mpg it started shuddering, it stopped at 35 and does great at highway speeds?? Help me please!!! Jan


If it's automatic it may not be selecting lower gear at lower revs.
other possibility is the engine management light is coming on.this is a yellow car icon on the sash.if this does come on then the car automatically goes into limp mode where it can't go faster than 30 mph to protect the engine.all sorts of reasons for it doing this low oil ....low oil pressure ....low brake fluid etc.get it to a garage and let then check ecu for any fault codes.but it does sound transmission related whereby the gears are fine when the revs are up but once you ease off accelerator it dies suggesting gears not dropping to lower gear or vacuum leak.

Oil pressure light staying on when ticking over,or braking


The fault is indicating low oil pressure, when the engine revs are low the oil pressure drops, first thing to do is change the oil pressure switch (cheapest option), see if that cures the fault. If not have the oil pressure checked, if the fault is the oil pump, then it could cause serious engine damage. Needs to be check out as soon as possible. Good Luck

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).

I have toyota axio g grade 2007 december car.what does it mean S & B in gear system.


The short answer:

S is for low speeds with quick pickup.
S is not economical. Thats why the eco light is off.

Use B when you're climbing down steep hills and needs to slow down without overheating the brakes.


The long answer:
  • Brake (B)A mode selectable on some Toyota models. In non-hybrid cars, this mode lets the engine do compression braking, also known as engine braking, typically when encountering a steep downhill. Instead of engaging the brakes, the engine in a non-hybrid car switches to a lower gear and slows down the spinning tires. The engine holds the car back, instead of the brakes slowing it down. For hybrid cars, this mode converts the electric motor into a generator for the battery. It is not the same as downshifting in a non-hybrid car, but it has the same effect in slowing the car without using the brakes. GM called this HR (hill retarder) and GR (grade retarder) in the 1950s.


S has 2 possibilities

  • Second (2 or S)This mode limits the transmission to the first two gear ratios, or locks the transmission in second gear on Ford, Kia, and Honda models. This can be used to drive in adverse conditions such as snow and ice, as well as climbing or going down hills in the winter time. Some vehicles will automatically shift up out of second gear in this mode if a certain RPM range is reached in order to prevent engine damage. Although traditionally considered second gear, there are other names used. Chrysler models with a three-speed automatic since the late 1980s have called this gear 3 while using the traditional names for Drive and Low.
  • S or SportThis is commonly described as 'Sport mode'. It operates in an identical manner as 'D' mode, except that the upshifts change much higher up the engine's rev range. This has the effect on maximising all the available engine output, and therefore enhances the performance of the vehicle, particularly during acceleration. This mode will also downchange much higher up the rev range compared to 'D' mode, maximising the effects of engine braking. This mode will have a detrimental effect on fuel economy. Hyundai has a Norm/Power switch next to the gearshift for this purpose on the Tiburon. GM also used S to indicate a "super" mode, being the same as the 2 position on a Chrysler, shifting between only first and second gears.


Dont use B or S for general driving as both are very low on fuel efficiency.

My 1993 rodeo makes a loud ticking noise until it reaches 2000 rpm's . Then it just shuts off like a switch. My mom had one and hers done the same thing. It sometimes doesn't also rev the rpm's down when i...


That ticking your hearing is most likely a valve lifter or tappet that is dirty or failing.At low RPM the oil pressure is lower, as you increase the engine speed the oil pressure rises; with this the lifter sees more oil pressure too and it fills fully with oil thus the ticking stops. You may be able to fluch the oil system in hopes of cleaning out any debris; my gut says the lifter is beginning to fail and should be replaced. If you have the ability and tools this is something you can do in your garage; pick up a manual and review the procedure before tearing into the engine.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Yes, most likely a fault in the auto transmission, and the car has shut itself off to prevent further damage.
