If this has an automatic transmission check the fluid to see if it is low of burnt. Fill if necessary. If not unfortunately you need to take to a transmission shop so it has a warranty when repaired.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

When i started my car, it accelerated on it's on. after driving for a while the check engine went on and when i put the car in park, it accelerated again. What is wrong? Is it safe to drive???


NO, it is not safe to drive a a vehicle with accelerator problems. I will say for you to have this issue with a Jeep Liberty is very unusual.

I have a 2002 Mazda MPV; the engine is shaking, foward and backward really hard when I am sitting still, with the car in gear. What's strange is that it doesn't shake when I have the emergency brake on,...


Possibly a bad / leaking brake booster basically creating a major vacuum leak when the brake pedal is depressed. Had one in the shop just last week doing exactly the same thing & that was the problem.

2001 windstar transmission


The transmission has failed, there is a class action law suit aginst Ford for transmission problems like yours, they go maybe 30-60,000 between overhauls, they are poorly designed, I lost count of how many I pulled out for repair at the Ford dealer I worked at for 20 years.

Shift lever cable


It certainly sounds like something has become disconnected between your gear shifter and the transmission. If your shifter is in the floor, just take the cover/housing off and check it out. It will probably be fairly difficult to see anything from underneath the vehicle. Hope this helps. God bless!
