Question about 1997 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Press accelerator, but car won't move

Car has been running okay, with the exception that at times it feels like the car just doesn't want to go forward (when going up an incline). Stopped at traffic light this a.m. When light turned green and I pressed accelerator, car wouldn't move. Put in reverse, but car still wouldn't move. Finally, after trying a few times, put car in drive and it went forward. Next light, same thing happened. Checked transmission fluid, and it was very low. Added fluid. Service Engine light now on.

Yeah, put some transmission fluid in it. With car in park and running, pull the transmission dipstick and see where the fluid is on the dipstick. Add accordingly.

I have a Toyota Camry 1992. The car runs okay, but when I stop the wheel start to vibrate really hard, it doesn't do it when I accelerate the car or it is in Parking.


Hi,
This is usually due to warped/worn brake discs/rotors. Time to have a brake job done.

It could also be the wheel bearings. It will require a mechanic to fix.
