SOURCE: Hood Open and Windshield wipers

I had the same problem with a C320 and I took it into a (Backyard mechanic) only to not have it solved! I am a helicopter mechanic and finally pulled it into the garage and troubleshot it myself. Here is what I found! When the hood shuts there is a sensor that sits right where the actual latch, allows the hook to (LATCH). My latch was loose!!! I tried it out from every angle and clipped it back into the latch only to have it (FIXED).... I fixed it myself and was really mad that I paid some ******** mechanic who didn't know what he was doing!!!!!! OH YEAH, The windshield wipers are somehow wired to the hood!!!! If you fix the hood the windshield wipers will work fine (I'm pretty sure)

Check the latch. I guarantee you it will probably be the solution.

My vw 1.8 2003 passat doesn't pick up speed when i press the gas

Its possible that your catalytic converter is clogged and its not letting you get sufficient power when you press the gas. If its the gear thats now powering enough, there may be a possible problem with the transmission.

Hi, i have a 1999 bmw 323i and the is not giving me the performance as usual, it wont pick up speed fast, if am going 50mh and i press the break and than press on the gas it wont respond fast at all even...

A few classic possibilities here. First your throttle body sensor may be bad. Second your mass airflow sensor may be bad. Third your fuel regulator may be on the blitz. Also, if your oxygen sensor is going bad you may feel a slow response to your acceleration. My best bet is that your mass airflow sensor is going bad. Please have your car diagnosed at the nearest AutoZone for free.

Why wont my chevy tahoe pick up speed ? we did everything , new spark plugs , new gas filter ,new fuel pump , new air filter , new gas filter , new spark plug wires , still it wont pick up speed . Why ?

did you check the timing? the firing order.
does the engine rpm rev up high? if it does then check the transmsission for low on fluid or slipping.
check your catalytic converter for clogged up.

When is running and you press the gas pedal no speed

Throttle sensor may be bad, does it gradually pick up in speed, how fast can you go, does it stall out ect.

No pick up

Have you changed the fuel filter lately. Sounds like you have a fuel restriction. You could have a clogged catalytic converter. When the car is in park rev the engine and listen. Does it sound like the exhaust is having a hard time getting out? Hope this helps.
