Car has no acceleration, engine sounds normal, eng starts normal, wont do more than about 25klm per hr
Hi, first check if the throttle is functioning correctly, and check your flow meter.

Testimonial: "Thanks for that but the throttle seems to be fine, it accelerates (revs) fine statically, revs increase in correspondence to amount of accelerator and will hold the revs at any RPM no problem. Seems to be just once under load, engine still sounds normal, the car just wont accelerate. Assumed if it was a stuck valve or damaged vales, pistons, cyclinder etc of that nature the engine would show some signs when car static. Anyway, time for an expert, just thought there might be something obvious out there to solve the mystery. Many thanks for your help."

it means its due for service. If u wanna get rid of it without servicing the vehicle then as you start the car simultaneously push the ODOMETER reset button on the dash and it will wipe it. This will however just delay the point your car needs servicing.

If the engine revs up while in drive and running at 40mph, your transmission is probably slipping. Try checking your transmission fluid level. If it is OK, I would get it by a garage to have them look at it to cofirm.

There should be a cable that runs from the back of your speedometer to the transmission. If you look on the engines side of the firewall you should be able to track it....it is one of very few cables that run into the transmission. NOTE: its a little thicker than most. At the transmission there will be a fastener of some sort holding it in. Unscrew it and check the end of the cable. If all seems well try attaching a drill to that end and have a buddy look at the gage to see if it shows speed when the drill is running ...if not then its either broken in the middle somewhere or came unhooked from behind the guage....if it does show speed then it was either not seated correctly to the transmission or the plastic tip (looks like plastic gear) on the transmission side of the cable it worn down too far. That tip is interchangeable for if you get bigger/smaller tires.
