(Not a mechanic) First thing to check is the transmission fluid level. If excessivly low it may not move. (Usually check trans fluid with transmission dip stick, while engine is idling and warmed up) Consult owners manual to verify procedure. If your fluid levels are normal or close to normal, you should call a transmission shop unless you are or know a good mechanic.
that is a possibility. is this a guarantee to fix? if he has done the proper diagnostics and he is guarantee the repair then this would be logical. but no fix no pay. dont let it turn into something else and something else. hope this helps
I'd pull the "idle air control valve " (located on side of throttle body near front) off, and use some throttle body spray cleaner on it & the port it came out of. Spray pintle (pointed part) good to remove any gunk etc. Re-install, it & try it. if it cures your problem for a while & starts to act up again, replace it.
check throttle position sensor wire chewed up, broken wire or unplugged? check with volt meter mesure the voltage @ throttle positon sensor see if there's voltage goes up/down when u apply/release gas.
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.
