I have a 2003 nissan maxima v6... how do I check if my muffler is clog or converter the car starts and run for a couple of mins but I try to give it gas but my rpms dont go over 2000? It only picks up...


you only have to go to the nearest place to have the fault codes read. converters cab break up and block the exhaust but this is after high rpms and constant high speed driving and exhaust mufflers very seldom block up. The restricted rpms indicate that the engine /transmission is in protected mode and that will be revealed by the fault codes obtained from the reading.

Driving at 40 mph and rpms were at 6000


Well with no other info,your transmission might not be shifting. Please check fluid level and reply. Also is the check,engine light on? You may be on limp mode if it is on. Worst case you need a new transmission best case low fluid level.

03 Intrepid starts great, engine quiet, runs spectacular until I hit approx. 40 mph then the rpms will go up to approx. 3000 but the car wont shift. Any suggestions?


Check for codes, may have a bad speed sensor either input(turbine) or output (vehicle) speed sensor. They are a common problem with the Chrysler transmission.

2000 grand caravan won't go above 70 mph. high rpms


First I need to ask is it a 4 speed or a 3 speed transmission. If it's a 4 speed when driving down the road pull it from drive to third gear. You shpuld hear the engine speed up if it does not then that means you have on 4th gear and you will have to take it to a transmission shop. If it's a 3 speed then just count the shift points if all 3 gears are present then drive down the road and see if the van goes into tcc. When you mean the rpms are high how high are they.

Mercury xr7 starts then starts coughing and chocking like not


My cougar does the same, it starts and then about 1 minute later (or so) the check engine light comes on and the car idles really high, with black smoke out the exhaust. It stays in second gear i think and it will not shift out of it. Max speed is 40 mph with the rpms screaming, it will go off after a long time but this is agrivating. I have a 94 mercury cougar xr7 3.8 ltr Any help please?

1999 Grand Voyager transmission not shifting into high gear


Do yourself a favor & get it scanned at transmission shop, or dealer & fixed as needed,(within reason) . Delaying it could cost lots of money. A rebuilt is about $1500-$2000.

Service engine light -- on then off, then on, then off


If it's the check engine light, I'd look at the radiator for partial internal obstruction...In colder temps or running at speed it tends to run a bit cooler. RPM change may be computer attempting to compensate for this. I'm not a KIA expert, but this applies to any vehicle. Also check your coolant level. If it's low it will also act this way.
