Car wont go when gas is pressed while in gear but in park it revs up just fine ?

Hi Joey, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Joey, either you have a bad battery, OR the alternator is not charging the battery. Here's what you can do, take the battery out of the vehicle and take it to AutoZone and have them charge it and check it. If they say its good, then you'll need to remove the Alternator and have them check it. If its bad replace it. If it's OK then you need to check the system out to see why its not charging. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website:

When i am sitting still idling in drive there is a small rattle coming from the transmission and sometimes it tries to pull while im still on the brake.

That could be two seperate problems. Check the cat converter for the rattle. If OK. May be tourq converter in transmission. Trying to pull while braking may have to do with IAC motor, Dependes on Year Make Modle ect, Need more info on car

1996 geo metro lsi 4 cyl. not antilock. new shoes and pads. all bled and adjusted. rear brakes will not lock up. I can turn rear wheel by hand with helper holding foot brake hand brake locks it up tight.

Know how you feel I've been there! Although your friend can't turn it dosent meen you have a good brake. so its not the reason it is jacked up that you have a brake It's stopping it but not enough when you are driving. Did you adjust them up after you changed the shoe's. If you did then they are just not bedded in.You will know this by pulling the hand brake when its moving it should slide the back wheel's. If the hand brake does'nt work properly then drive it with the handbrake pulled up until you hear the engine rev's go down. Let the handbrake off and ter the foot brake. You should have brake's. Hope this help's it works for me.

Stalls or pulls when you press on gas

Hello, I would first do a general tune up. Replace the oil, fuel, and air filter. I would next change your Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Distributor Cap and Rotary Button. This may be just a clogged fuel or air filter or your spark plugs are fowled out and they need replaced as well. I would first however check your brakes becuase you say it pulls correct; this may be bad brakes and rotors and grabbing so I would inspect and check these first and if they are not bad I would move onto the tune up ok. If you have any questions email me back. I hope you have good luck!

Sme thing happened to me, but the advice is grim. I had to have the whole transmission replaced because of a bad torque converter...I would be sitting at a light and the car would just go all by itself, or as I was driving down the highway the tach. would go crazy and shut the car down into "safe" mode where it would not go out of first gear. Other times I would have to keep both feet on the brakes because the car would be pulling so hard! The dealership told me the crankshaft position sensor too, then a month later the car just shut down and would not start. Hope this helps.

Clutch problem

Its is totally acceptable to reuse a flywheel as long as it was machined to where a new finish was achieved.A machine shop will cut off about .020"-.050" to achieve a new,machined finsih.Same concept as turning brake rotors when performing a brake job.Have the clutch hydraulics checked,as this is what applies and releases the clutch when actuating the pedal.The clutch pedal engagement point is also adjustable up under the dash.One thing to remember when driving a manual trans vehicle is,for example,when sitting at a stop light.apply the brake and sit still.I can't tell you how many times i've seen people sit at a stop light,and rock the vehicle back and forth by applying then relasing the clutch pedal,causing the vehicle to pull forward a couple feet,then roll back a couple feet,pull forward,and roll back.This severely shortens the lifespan of the clutch,as it gets TOO hot.If at a traffic light,just apply the brake and sit still.There are correct and incorrect ways to drive a manual trans vehicle,all of which is determinate of how long the clutch will last.
