Re: my 1992 500 wont go pass 25-30miles per hour
I would say check brakes first, make sure you dont have a sticking caliper. take off breaks press in caliper, if it wont go in replace the caliper, i would say your brake system would be making the sticking feeling and not the transmission from how you make it sound.

Check your transmission fluid level. [I rebuilt a C-4 Ford in a college class. Had a big leak. After I put 9 more quarts of trans fluid in it worked. ] 2 quarts low will make it fail. Be sure and use the correct fluid for your brand and year of car. Big Chain advertised Trans rebuild shops are often a scam. They take apart your trans then want thousands to put it back together. The Federal Trade Commission nailed them for this years ago. Find a local shop recommended by several GOOD mechanics. Dealers are usually good but expensive. Most trans repairs can be done without removing the trans. A good shop can test the trans while mounted in the car. Can hook up test hoses and see what is happening. This was true in 1980s when I took the class. Might have electronic tests now. If it is an older trans the fluid is thick. Putting in new thin fluid will make it worse.
Auto Trans are hydraulic "brain surgery" If you can find a guaranteed rebuilt trans that's a good route. Putting it in takes a lot of skill and a lift. My neighbor tried it in his driveway, it failed and after 2 months took it to a shop. Damaged the pump $$$
[I drive a stick shift with crank up windows. It has 4 / 60 Air Conditioning 4 windows open 60 Miles per hour !!! :) Good Luck
if when you get to 30 miles per hour the rpms are excessively high then the 3rd gear on you're transmission is out. you can try changing the transmission filter and fluid but most likely will not help and you will have to replace the transmission or have it rebuilt anyways. I'm assuming its an automatic transmit ion and therefore if high rpms at 30 miles per hour its sadly the transmission
put some trans additive like lucas that removes varnish off solenoids--amsoil is anothr brand--ajust the throttlvalve cable on the intake--------may need to rplace governor pressure solenoid and torque converter sol--trans cud be worn out-hav a concerned mechanic take a test drive
HI, Wow! Glad you both came out of it unhurt. What I think happened is that one or more of you engine mounts failed. When you punch the gas pedal on a car with a failed engine mount. The engine will twist in the opposite direction of the torque being created in the drive train. When you punch it hard, while passing, the engine will twist enough to pinch the gas pedal linkage against the chassis wall, locking down. DON'T DRIVE IT, EVEN IF SLOWLY. GET IT TOWED. Installing mounts is not a very difficult job, so you can, if you want, do it yourself. Hope the rest of your New Year has no more excitement and adventure that you don't want. Happy New Year, Best Regards, Mark
one of the symptoms of a faulty coil is that it will cut off when warm next time you run it just feel the coil if it is hot then that most probably is the problem also the resistor underneath the coil hope this helps regards Jim
