Rpm went to idle and will not accelerate

Traveling from Seattle to Salem OR, engine dropped to idle, would not accelerate, engine light came on. Turned off motor for 5 min. restarted and seemed all right after that except check engine light stayed on. Also at some point during the tripe I lost front end traction, the transfer case is locked in but front drive assembly does not respond, was lucky to get home in this snowy conditions. 2001 dodge cummins 6 spd manual 4x4 3500 dually.

SOURCE: Our 2001 Dodge Caravan seems to be leaking oil around drive shaft

Yes it's a bad seal and most likely the side bearing to the trans axle is bad too. Once the bearing has play, it vibrates and causes the oil to leak though the seal. Note: if one side went bad the other side is soon to follow since they have the same amount of miles on them. Might as well change both side. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid level, don't want to burn out the transmission.

Rpm drop below idle


What's happening is, the engine is under increase load when the A/C is running. Typically there is a solenoid (near the throttle linkage) that controls idle speed when the A/C compressor (clutch) is engaged. It activates each time the compressor cycles on to regulate the system. If idle returns to normal when A/C clutch is disengaged (or A/C is off), then the solenoid or some signal that controls the solenoid to maintain the idle is the likely to be the problem. e.g. The solenoid fuse maybe blown. This might be a good place to start investigating the problem. Best of luck resolving this problem.

The tachometer shows 900 RPM on idle position but as i put the car in gear and release the clutch the RPM drops and u have to race the car manually through accelerator pedal.recomend the diagnostics a


The engine does not need to be raced when cold

The vehicles computer will adjust the idle according
to how the manufacture programmed it

After about one mine or so, the idle on most vehicles
comes down to approx 750RPM, generically speaking

When you put the car in gear,assuming it is an automatic,
the rpm will drop a 100 at most & may be adjusted by the
computer, just as it does when you put the A/C on. That is
to compensate for the change in engine load

You should be waiting for the rpm to come down to 650 to
800 & then a couple more minutes for some temp to come
up, before driving off. In cold weather wait at least 5 min or more

I think your vehicle is not working correctly, or you not explaining
it in a way I understand what answer you want

Have a '95 Windstar. Was traveling about 45 mph today and the rpm gauge continued to stay where it was and the brakes barely stopped the car, while the engine continued to race as if still moving at 45...


There is more to the throttle then just the pedal. The cable at the other end by the throttle body could have been stuck or the throttle position sensor had an issue.

1995 Chev Silverado 2500 5.7 ... was running fine, then began missing while idling. A few minutes later, would not shift into overdrive for lack of rpm's and accelerated slowly. Was towing a trailer. ...


I stopped to assist a gas powered Winnebago stuck on the highway a while back. The engine would run but not produce much power or rpm's.

The problem turned out to be a plugged muffler which seriously reduced the air flow to the intake system and as a result the power and ability of the engine to rpm's or power.

As modern day vehicle engines are computer controlled there could be systems that are not functioning properly...which should log a code and activate a warning light on your dash board. ODBII diagnostics is always the first step to take when trying to isolate a fault.

Check engine light on, while decellerating on freeway offramp the engine dropped down to an idle. when pressing the accelerator the engine barely raises the rpm's. linkage seems ok.


Check engine light usually means some failure in emissions control
system. Kia will have to hook up and get diagnostic code or codes.

Error code po0117. Vw beetle


16501/P0117 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too Low Possible Symptoms
  • Difficulties with starting a cold engine.
  • Starting the engine when engine is warmish or warm, idle rpm immediately is 1200 - 3000 rpm.
  • RPM at idle is irregular.
  • With all engine temperatures seldom idle rpm will vary between 900 - 1000 rpm.
  • With engine warm (90 °C) the engine temperature suddenly drops (70 °C) and slowly comes back to 90 °C.
  • Bad acceleration during warming up.
    • Diesel: an indication is extreme long time burning time of the glow indication light.
Possible Causes
  • The electrical signal coming from G62 is too low
  • Wiring and/or connections faulty (short circuit?)
  • Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check wiring and connections
  • Check / Replace Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62)
Special Notes
  • In MY 1995-2002 (?) in Europe at VW-cars the G2/G62 had the bad reputation of breaking down often. The default G2/G62 is black and all replacements are green.

RPM drops to zero at idling after engine accelerates when warm


This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.

I have 2002 audit quattro TT with 180k miles. When I do a normal acceleration the car surges and rpm drop but pick back up. If I accel hard it runs fine. Also at idle at times it varies 200 rpm like a


this sounds similar to a problem i had. as the rpm went over 2000 the engine would stop for a split second and then kick back in.
after a few days looking my garage finally found the problem was a faulty air mass meter.
this cost me £200 in total to be repaired.
