Hey there, as far as yuor truck is concerned, you may need to check your throttle position sensor, if your truck is equipped with one, it may be bad and that would make your RPM jump and decrease dramatically....

Engine shifts but rpms stay high

Your car acts like it needs a transmission service.That's where you should start. GM cars can act like the trans is shot when all it needs is a new filter. I don't understand how the dealer could miss it, though. Get back to me and let me know.

I have a 2000 Nissan Sentra GXE. The engine has a judder on acceleration. Most noticeable between 2 and 3k rpms. It does it on hard throttle at speed also.I have no check engine light on and have replaced...

Try replacing the IAC ( idle air control). They can cause the hesitations and can also cause the vehicles ilde to jump up and down. Also check for any loose vaccuum lines.

I have a 1984 rochseter quadrajet. how do you adjust the A.P.T. adjust ment screw

It's called the tip in procedure. You need to run the engine at 2000-2200 rpms and gently cover the choke opening with your hand. If the rpms go up about 100, it is set right. Too much of a rise in rpms, or rpm surging means it is too lean. No rise in rpms means it is too rich. If you pull a vacuum line and the rpms increase, it is too rich; pulling the vacuum line should keep the rpms steady or cause a slight drop. You need to remove the air horn to access the APT screw. You knock out the aluminum plug and install the air horn again to adjust while running the engine. You can 3/8 tap and plug the hole for easy access or drive the aluminum plug back in when done. Turn the APT screw Clockwise to lean it out and counterclockwise to richen it up. To turn it, make a tool with a 5/16 x3 bolt. Cut a notch in the bottom with a hacksaw or grinder about 1/8" wide. The bolt will fit into the hole with the air horn.

Engine jumps/RPMs rise or lower when stopped (with brake).

check the vacuum hose first and if it's been over 30,000 miles and you havn't had a transmission service it is a good idea to have that done
