    I have a 100k 96 grand am. I love her, but when I am trying to accelerate (I dont think the problem only comes up from stopped) I feel a lack of power. I can feel and see the enigine is revving high for a good 1-3 seconds before shifting. This problem shows up inconsistently. Thanks!

The first thing to check is the fluid level in the transmission. If quite low, look for red leakage on the floor where you park. Suggest you find a quality auto transmission shop to check this out before you require very expensive service. Good luck!

Without getting into transmission diagnostics that would require special tools, you can check the transmission fluid level. You could also drain and replace the trans fluid to see if this solves the problem. Changing the fluid is considered regular maintence, and will not hurt a thing. The trans will benifit from fresh fluids in the long run also.

Thats it. another problem is you should feel a good positive shift, not just lazily shifting into gear. when driving on the road and the engine revs up but the car doesnt get any faster. The first thing to do is verify the trans fluid level.

You most likely have a broken sunshell inside the transmission. They tend to go out when the transmission is shifted to drive when while still rolling in reverse.

Four wheel drive wont engage

Hi ninja,


Make sure you have plenty of 90 wt. in the front axle. I've got an '86 Cherokee Laredo. It doesn't kick right in to gear. You need to be moving, but not to fast. Sometimes reversing, then back into drive works.

When you disengage it, if you are moving at or above 30 mph, you'll hjear a rapid clicking from the front axle as it tries to let go. Put it in neutral for a second or two. That will take enough strain off the drive train to allow it to disengage.

Best regards

If you have never had the trans serviced there could be gummy deposits causing a valve body malfunction. problem also can be related to a shift control problem that would need diagnosis by a trans shop with a ride along "flight recorder".
