Missing at 40-50 MPH

I just bought a 04 Z-71 Tahoe, it drives fine except between 40 and 50 MPH, it starts missing but then stops when I get out of that range. Any idea what that might be?

My Chevy Tahoe has no power and cant get up past 40 mph without starting to lose power, could it be Mass air flow sensor?


Possibly, but it sounds more likely a catalytic converter may need replacing or fuel filter maybe clogged

Loss of engine power/transmission 2001 chevy tahoe over 65 mph


Sound's as though a previous owner installed a speed governor so that the engine would not exceed the nationwide 55-65 mph speed limit average. This most likely was a company owned vehicle or owned by someone concerned about speeding ticket's or excessive speed by a teenage driver. It can be uninstalled by an experienced mechanic. Unless this poses a problem while driving on an interstate, you may wish to leave it as is.

What makes my 2002 Merc Sable have three little short pauses like misses when it shifts from 1st to 2nd gear.


Sounds like a coil breaking down. Try this for a test, get going to around 45 mph and lightly accelerate, is the is miss is reproduced then the most likely cause is the secondary ignition system. I.E plugs or wires or a coil.

My transmission works in winter drive but not on its own


Have you had the transmission control module scanned for fault codes? This transmission is electronically controlled. If no codes show up in memory then you may have a mechanical problem, Also winter selection starts in 2nd gear, so you may be missing that gear.

I have a 99 tahoe I just put an oil pump in it it seem 2 drive fine but when I get 2 about 55-65 mph I feel the truck do a jurk like it's pulling then it start 2 drive fine I change the back u joints...


First the shaft has to line up with gear teeth on the the ****** shaft. To get the other U joints off. they will have to heat up the U-joint with blow torch. Get them hot enough to where you see and hear the seal pop. Just had it done on an 89 chevy van. Also check out your lock-up tourqe convertor on your ******.

1997 astro misses at 50-60 mph with steady pedal pressure. when under acceleration runs fine. Also misses while passing through lower gears when starting from a stop.


This sounds like a partially blocked fuel injector. Easy fix is to run a bottle of STP or some other type of fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank. You should see some improvement within 100 miles of driving. More costly but faster is take the car to a shop that cleans fuel injectors. Hope this helps
