Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu

Stalling And Engine Revving

Okay so, When I start the tracker it starts fine, but when I put it in reverse, it will back up. But once I've backed up and stopped, the car stalls and the rpms still rev like crazy. After about 10 seconds or so (feels like an hour when I could be in harms way since I can't move!) it will kind of buck forward. Once I'm driving, it keeps reving really hard as I step on the gas. Once I get to stop sign at the end of my road, I stop and it stalls again. Also, in the past few days it's been reving but I can't go any faster, it acts like I'm in neutral. Yesterday, my speedometer wouldn't work until I took a back road and hit a bump. Speedometer is working now. So I've rambled, and I need help!

Sounds like a transmission problem. My car was doing that and it turns out it had a transmission fluid leak that had led to major transmission damage. The bad news: the entire transmission had to be rebuilt.

When i get up to 40 miles an hour the car has something shaking but only when it accelerates Also today... when starting the car and putting it into reverse it starts revving on its own


The shaking when under acceleration i most likely a bad CV Joint/Axle Assembly.

The revving in reverse could be caused by a crackedvacuum hose that opens up and creates a vacuum leak when the engine twists while it is in reverse.

Poor responce when first started


If lurches when going forward and requires extra throttle, but reverses okay, it due to breakage of the valve body spring. All ZF HP-series automatics have this problem. Have a qualified Jag shop (independent is okay) replace the spring with the improved unit. If you wait too long the transmission will fail completely.
