SOURCE: rpm hunting

check for a vaccuum leak this is where i would start if it rolled into my shop. possibly a PCV valve sticking or a hole in the hose, this hose should run from the valve cover, or crank case and then to the intake, or carb.

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.

Vehicle will accelerate to 20-25 mph, then it feels as thoughit goes into neutral. It will not accelerate, the rpm's increase, that's all. It is as though it won't engage into the higher gears or...


Sounds like you are onto the problem.
You may have lost 3rd gear. If its an automatic you'll need a transmission shop to check it out.

Car won't start. Sounds like the engine flooded. Not the starter. Also loses power going uphill and when accelerating.


Check Engine Light flashing when accelerating ,severe engine misfire . Something in the ignition system is breaking down under a load . If the starter engages an spins the engine when you turn the key to start an it doesn't start an run , it has no spark or fuel pressure . If you don't know this or how to diagnose .suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . Pull two plug wires off the top of the same coil an crank the engine , if you do not see a spark jump from one coil tower to the other you have an ignition system problem . ignition module or crankshaft position sensor

Check the transmission fluid.make sure the car is at operating temperature and in park.go to parts store and buy transmission filter kit. automatic transmission works on fluid pressure if it is restricted the tramsmission won't shift right.the fluid and filter are to b changed usually between 40 to 50k miles

Between 40-65 mph on or off cruise feels like transmission is trying to shift, sends a slight shudder in car, does not trip a code , has been in dealer many times for problem. I have owned car for 6 mo. It...


It sounds like your transmission is having a problem going into and out of overdrive. In drive if you are not accelerating hard through this range, the transmission should go into overdrive and you should see the engine RPMs drop. A bump can occur if the overdrive solenoid is misbehaving (for example, not releasing promptly when you depress the accelerator or engaging promptly when entering this range). You will not see a code unless the solenoid has failed. You should be able to verify this by watching the RPMs carefully when you feel the shudder.

Transmission seems to slip slightly when transitioning into overdrive. Feels like a 'fish bite'. No 'service engine light' on, no misfire of any cylinders, no codes found. All other gears work smoothly...


I am surprised the AAMCO techs have no ideas about this. This "slipping" could be caused by the overdrive system having a mechanical problem (e.g. sticking solenoid, leaking seal) when trying to engage or disengage.
The overdrive solenoid locks the torque converter when activated, and releases when deactivated, both starting to happen when the vehicle is above about 40 mph and depending on what the vehicle is doing at the time (accelerating, decelerating or coasting). When you depress the accelerator and the solenoid is engaged at close to this speed, it should immediately release, and then re-engage when you stop accelerating, and you should immediately feel a light "bump" each time, not a "fish bite".

I think my automatic transmission modulator valve is going out because it jerks and vibrates when i accelerate anything above 50 MPH.


90 % of the time jerking or vibration is usually caused by the engine and not the transmission. The most common cause is cylinder misfiries caused by the ignition system that cause the vehicle to ****, stumble, or shudder which make it appear and feel as though the transmission is the cause. Most transmission problems will cause harsh shifts, slippage, and/or delayed engagement but rarely jerks or vibrations. I'd start by looking at the spark plugs, plug wires, and coil packs to make sure they are all ok first before going any further. The reason most of these problems are more noticable over 50 mph is that the torque converter clutch is engaged at this point and it provides a solid connection between the engine and drivetrain which makes engine misfires more noticable. Good luck, hope this helps a bit!

1985 4Runner 22RE (injected / auto trans) has NO accelaration.


From minor problem to major problem. Try to replace your spark plug wires, rotor cap and the spark plugs, also it can be the injectors, plus if possible, try to replace the fuel filter which is located low under your EFI unit. If problem not solved, then it will probably be your A/T trans.
