Could have faulty injectors flooding the system causing an overly rich condition. DO notice any black smoke coming from the back?

    you mean acceleration sensor? there's no such thing to my knowledge, but there are sensors that monitor your speed, which is how your speedometer and tachometer work, also there are speed governors, but they do not affect how your motor performs. There's a throttle position sensor that could be faulty (that's the part that tells your cars computer how far you have the pedal down and how much fuel to deliver to the motor), if your engine has a carburetor then it may need adjustment or replacement. There are too many variables to diagnose your problem without having a good look at your system. I recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable mechanic to have it checked, but if they tell you it's your acceleration sensor they are trying to rip you off and you should go somewhere else. Also since you said there was no smoke you're not running rich (rich is when there is more fuel than there is oxygen to help it burn and so it doesn't burn completely). Perhaps you could be running lean which is the opposite of rich (not enough gas going through).

Why does my 2000 Monte Carlo SS pulsate between 50-60 mph?


check the TPS sensor as it could have a bad spot in it. also the trans maybe going in and out of overdrive at that speed.

My 99 maxima car rpm goes up and down olny when i hit 2,000rpm's and will not go over 45 mph what could be wrong with it ?


If your driving along light on the gas & as the transaxle
shifts or later the tach or rpm flairs up,then the transaxle
is slipping

There is no fix for that ,other than having it removed & rebuilt

Need a trans repair shop for that

Why dosent my car advance when i step on the gas pedal


From what you say Daniel, your kickdown cable need's to be adjusted, here's how :

Down at the pressure lever on the front of the trans, loosen off the cable retaining nuts so there is a little slack in the cable.
then start taking the slack out of the cable a little bit at a time;
Rest a long screwdriver on the end of the pressure lever, holding the screwdriver with one hand start opening the throttle with your other hand.

Just at the point the idle RPM barely rises, the pressure lever should just barely move.

Driving test; Going along a level road at 25 mph light throttle, floor the gas pedal.
The trans should downshift to first gear.

repeat the same drive at 28 mph, floor the gas pedal, the trans only downshifts to second gear.

My 98 dodge ram vibrates bad at 40 mph plus at a steady low rpm. if i step on the gas it kinda stops and if i let go of the gas is stops completely it also started misfiring when it started this


Torque convertor shutter? Maintain the speed that it does this, and with your left foot, apply a small amount of pressure to the brake pedal. Not enough to slow vehicle, but enough to disengage the lock up convertor. If it goes away, try servicing the fluid with new 7176. if that doesnt do it, replace the convertor.

00 chevy blazoefuel tank pressure sensor!


if the truck overheated it will not accelerate over a certain speed do a coolant pressure check on the vehicle and if it looses pressure you probably have a cracked head or a blown head gasket.

Loss of power at 2400 rpm's


Check your mass airflow meter. If it's bad, at least on my 1990 300ZX, the car won't rev over 2400RPM (it's a safeguard built into the ECU of the car). Grab one from a scrapyard and swap it in and see if that fixes the issue.
