I just got done with this same problem. Check a small looped vacuum hose just behind the mass air flow sensor which is attached to the air filter housing. the hose will be toward the plenom on the right side next to a blue connector. They have a tendency of getting soft.

SOURCE: 1988 cutlass ciera boggs down when i accelerate

Hello! You have symptoms that point to incorrect fuel pressure.
First have the fuel pressure tested as follows; #1...engine running at idle: 13- 20 psi. #2...key on engine off: 23-30 psi. If pressure is incorrect change the fuel pump.

Does the engine "surge" at idle? If so, check the "fuel injection pressure regulator idle air control valve". Apply a vacuum to it; If fuel flows it is not the problem.

SOURCE: Car pulsates when shifting into overdrive.

Need to verify if its overdrive or the torque converter locking up. If its when it engages overdrive these transmissions are noted for the 4th clutch hub splines stripping out and 4th clutches slipping, Need to verify. Have vehicle checked for trans codes, a code P1811-long shift, max. adapt could be many things. If it just when the torque converter locks up it could be the converter itself or an EPC solenoid sticking especially with a P1811 code. Either way it is proablly handled best by a professional.

run the fault codes first to check for TCM or servo/solenoids faults
the actuator is vacuum operated so a broken/ missing hose will have effects on gear shifting

At full throttle car doesn't want to accelerate. runs good just cruising around


Fuel or air restrictions. Filters first, then look at the catalytic converters.

Engine doesn't seem to be putting out the same power it used to. when i push on the accelerator, the engine revs up but lacks the acceleration speed it normally has. i'm familiar with transmissions...


Even though the transmission is shifting like it normally does, the torque converter may not be locking like it should be. That would give the feeling of the engine being normal but the acceleration not being 'solid'. If the engine seems to be running normally, the problem is likely the torque converter.

1994 camaro Z28 Convertable automatic. When driving when you release the gas pedal there is no engine braking. Engine will return to idle instanly. At all RPM's. Transmission shifts smooth during...


I'd hazard a guess that the torque converter disengages from "lock up" when you lift your foot. This would let the engine instantly idle down, and would produce no braking effect from a closed throttle.

Try driving it (at a lower speed) in direct, rather than overdrive, and see if the same thing occurs, or if you get the expected braking effect when you lift your foot off the throttle.

put the torque converter on the gearshaft ans spin it to the right while pushing on it... it should slide back about 2-3 times.. youll know when its all the way on... the throttle doesnt have anything to do with your tranny... i think your refering to the kickdown cable.... leave it set like it is.. when your driving, and hit the gas hard, if it downshifts REAL early or doesnt seemto down shift thats when you need to adjust it to where it feel like it downshift right...
hope this helps

SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION SLIPPING. CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.IF FLUID LEVEL OKAY BUT FLUID LOOKS DARK SMELL BURNT.CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER ADD SOME VALVE BODY TREATMENT TO LOOSEN STICKEN SHIFT VALVES.ADD TO TRANSMISSION FLUID DONT OVER FILL TRANSMISSION WILL CAUSE OVERHEAT. IF TRANSMISSION FLUID GOOD FILTER ALREADY BEEN CHANGED.IF ALL GOOD ENGINE BEEN TUNED UP OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES FOR TRANSMISSION SLIPPING NOT GOING TO OVER DRIVE COULD BE THROTTLE SHIFT CABLE OUT ADJUSTMENT OR STRETCHED. TORQUE CONVERTER FAULTY OR SHIFT VALVES TO TORQUE CONVERTER OR OVER DRIVE STUCK IN VALVE BODY. VALVE BODY FAULTY. AND HAVE VECHICLE SCANNED FOR FAULTY VECHICLE SPEED SENSOR OR FAULTY THROTTLE CONTROL MODULE OR FAULTY THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR. THEY WILL EFFECT TRANSMISSION SHIFT TO OVER DRIVE IF FAULTY.
