Question about 2000 Cadillac Escalade

Escalade with poor acceleration

My 2000 escalade will not accelerate over 30mhp until the rpms go up to 5000. This happens when I am driving slow or have to accelerate quickly. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: oil gauge jumps back and forth on a 2000 escalade

First make sure you have the proper oil level.
Then;
It's one of two things. The oil pressure switch or the oil pressure sender.
I think you can start with the pressure switch.

You try an analog oil pressure gauge on to test the oil pressure if you want to. That would
verify the oil pump/pickup.

SOURCE: 2002 escalade- the transmission doesnt

Sounds like a solenoid or two in the transmission is dirty or defective. Needs a transmission rebuild to rectify it, or a replacement transmission that has lower miles or a newer transmission that doesn't have this problem.

One can try a transmission flush and refill, which costs about $100 or so, but that may not fix the problem. A rebuild is much more expensive, but is the way to go if you plan on keeping the vehicle for years to come.

SOURCE: I HAVE A 91 SEDAN

Sounds like a malfunctioning egr system. Too much egr gasses at once will lean out the air fuel mixture and cause hesitation in an engine. Just my 2 cents.

I have a nissan caravan, so I dont know how overdrive works, please help me!


if it is automatic then when the engine rpms is set to correspond with the tail shaft rpms then the transmission control module effects a change into over drive
If there is a change in conditions ,such as a loss of vacuum from acceleration , the TCM down shifts out of OD for better acceleration, return to od when things are again in balance
the same on slowing down--the tcm sensors report an imbalance so the tcm keeps shifting down until the car has stopped.

I have a 2002 Celica GT 5-Speed and I shift at about 4k RPMs when getting on the highway and I still feel I'm accelerating to slow. Am i doing something wrong?


Not driving a corvette? Just kidding. More details are important. How slow is your acceleration? Is it 0-60 in 8 seconds, or 20 seconds? What is redline on your car? If redline is 5K then 4000 is a good responsible shift point. If redline is 8K then shifting at 4000 is probably robbing your engine of it's torque and horsepower band. I believe the GTS model has an 8K RPM redline, the GT may be lower, but in that case, shifting at 4K is too soon for strong acceleration. Your Tachometer should have redline clearly marked. For responsible use, stay below that, maybe 10-20%. For economy stay further still, but for power you need to let the engine use it's RPMS, especially smaller and fewer cylinder engines usually don't make their power until they are half way through the RPM range and above.

The transmission is clunking when I accelerates.


Might be the play in the drive shaft or play in the pinion gear.

I drive a manual transmission 2000 Outback. I was stopped on a steep hill, and when I started trying to go, my RPMs went up to 5000 and I couldn't go anywhere, so I stopped trying and saw some light grey...


From your description, it does sound like the clutch has again failed.
You can still safely drive the car, provided you avoid heavy acceleration and don't negotiate steep inclines.
However, the clutch slip will only get worse, so get it fixed ASAP.
If the new clutch has failed after only 12 months service, perhaps your clutch pressure plate should also be replaced.
Note that operator poor clutch technique (excessive slippage during starts) will also cause early clutch failure.
