It has a problem with the idle quality..when you use the heater with the a/c compressor it will raise the idle and get the fuel it needs to run...look for vacuum leaks.....hissing sucking sounds

When I come to a complete stop in my car, such as at a stop light, my car jerks forward, since my foot is on the brake it cant really do anything except **** in place. I also notice that on my RPM dial,...


Most cars rev on idle at around about 600 RPM and
750RPM and thats when you stop it stays at that rpm rate But if as you say yours trys to move then your problem is trying to still drive and not brake contact as what happens when you get at a stop lights etc the gear box should brake band stop which is like running free or in a manaul pushing in the clutch so your problem is in the GEARBOX..

if the car isnt skipping i'd say its a torque converter problem or a tcc solonoid problem in the trans. id check and make sure it isnt skipping first. it can skip at idle and you not notice it at higher rpm's

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

Engine Rev Trans does not grab going Forward


We had the very same problem and I found this post somewhere on the net and it worked! After ours stopped going forward, it went in reverse fine too then it stopped moving completely. We just pulled the sensor off today and are looking for a new one but at least the car goes great now. 15th Jul 2007, 21:04 Bought my wife a 99 Ford Taurus at auction. Like others the Transmission sensor gave out. A temporary quick fix is to open the hood, and simply pull off the sensor connector plug on top of the transmission. The transmission will now operate properly in both OD and drive. You will notice your rpm's are steady as your speed goes up - loss of fuel economy due to the failed sensor ( to technical to explain here...). Two things to do: Change out the old transmission fluid immediately - its gonna require synthetic fluid at a higher price, but is worth it as it shifts far better now. And change out the coolant. In fact, I suggest changing out ALL of the fluids and start clean. Until you get the sensor replaced your fuel economy will **** for a while, but its better than not having wheels at all and it IS safe to drive.
