Wow looks like your gear box just blew up
is it an auto? my guess it is an auto.
one of the cars herd did the same thing
with this car tho the over drive stopped working (4gear) so he was luckily and dident have to pay a sent as he never went over 100kph
this may be the same with you
if it is an auto put in into 1 or low then try to take off if this doesnt work you may need a new auto gearbox

2002 Mazda Tribute suddenly began losing power on hwy. Put pedal to floor & wouldn't go past 35-40mph but rpm revved high. Got off hwy & drove fine in town. Going home drove fine doing 45-50 off hwy


Check your transmission fluid to make sure it is at the correct level and that it is clean. It is possible that you may have a clogged filter, when was the last time the transmission was properly serviced with a fluid and filter change?

What does the MIL code "PO 320" mean, please?


code p0320 refers to cam shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring--CKP/RPM sensor ---ECM
because the engine runs ok until it is on cruise control I would be investigating the RPM sensor for a fault
The cruise control takes its control from the RPM sensor and if that circuit is interminable the the cruise control doesn't know what rpms to maintain.

I have a 1998 4wd automatic toyota 4runner and it won't start. The engine turns but won't "ignite" the engine light and A/T oil temp light appear on dashboard. any suggestions on what to check


Hi Nikki, What oil was low? Was it engine oil or gear box oil? Did the engine overheat? what exactly happened? Did you hear any strange noises when the engine stopped? Was the vehicle towed or was it on the back of a recovery vehicle? If it was towed, at what speed and over what distance? What engine is fitted? Is it petrol or diesel powered? Give as many details as possible to help us help you. Regards John

1998 Ford EB Explorer, 4.0L 5AT. Transmission stopped while driving. No clunk or grinding, etc. No Reverse or Drive. Will move slightly when revved. TC? Valve Body?


Forward clutch went out inside the trans, When you rev the engine, the fluid pressure rises and tries to apply the forward clutch assy. I rebuild these 5R55 trans for this concern a lot. Total rebuild kits with seals,fibers, steels, bands, servo's cost about 275.00 dollars plus the cost of the torque converter. Labor is about 1200 buck. Who ever does this repair for you, ask them for a 3yr/50k warranty. That means the shop really stands behind there rebuilds, as that is the trans warranty I give to my clients.

Ford 1998 F-150. Brakes overhauled 6 mos. ago. Hwy/City driving percentage: 90/10. I was driving on the freeway this morning, cruise control on, when the abs and brake light lit suddenly. I tapped...


With the sudden loss in brake pressure, and the light on, I would check the fluid level and if its low, suspect a brake fluid leak, that may be the burning smell, maybe leaking near a exhaust pipe? You dont mention where you are, but if its NORTH and salt is used to get snow off the roads, brake line failures are real common.

1998 automatic fiat punto


another factor that could affect your problem is the hydrolic fluid. there is a valve body inside the gearbox which controlls the gears. so lets say the vavle that controlls first gear dont open then the hydrolic fluid wont activate first gear. i think when u revv the engine it is increasing the hydrolic pressure which is aiding the vavle to open. the problem could be in the valve controll modual.
