Tatter Todd quickly came to the rescue. I followed his guidance of shifting through all gears, circulating and spreading the tranny fluid, being patient, and it worked. I ended up having to add more fluid which fixed the problem.

SOURCE: 99 toyota corolla hesitates while excellerating

Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?

When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.

EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.


You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)

MOVE the car to outdoor.

Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.

DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.

Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.

Please post more information by Clicking on the comment link.

I will follow up.

SOURCE: I have a 1993 Chevy Z71 Automatice with Overdrive

Normaly overdrive kicks in from 55 to 60 m.p.h. it sounds like its the tps, throttle positioning sensor.

it's attached to the left side of the carburetor passenger side, on a diesel same side. if the tps gets

loose, gets water in it or is bad you will have a problem shifting to overdrive. If you have done any

kind of engine work. and if it was removed it will need to be adjusted.good luck!

Mitsubishi express van 2.4 auto not changing into 4th gear. Any ideas?

If it's hesitant to shift, or not shifting at all, it could be a simple fix.
The first thing you'll have to do is to check the transmission fluid. Allow your van time to completely warm up before doing this. I recommend you do this while it is running. If it is low on fluid, there's your problem. If the fluid level is okay, then you may need the transmission filter and fluid both changed. Changing you fluid/filter is relatively simple. It's similar to an oil change with the exception being that the filter is inside the transmission, visible only when you remove the transmission pan. The filter isn't like an oil filter, it's more akin to your filter on your home A/C unit. Some have a replaceable filter, and some have a permanent filter that you'll have to remove and clean before re-installing. If you do need to replace it, they are inexpensive and found at any auto parts store. If it's still giving you problems, unfortunately it may be an internal problem that you'll have to take to a transmission specialist. Make sure to find out exactly how much fluid it holds and what type of transmission fluid it needs before you change it.

Just replaced plugs, changed oil and filter, upon excelleration, she falls on her face (has no power to GO) What's wrong with her?

Did you replace fuel filter? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it (STP, Gumout, etc) You also might consider having an OBII scan done (fault scan) any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc) can do that FREE - scan will show any faults your cars' computer has tracked.

When i shift into second and third gear, the car hesitates. could this be the fuel filter?

It certainly could be, and most people don't think of that. Check the fluid levels in the transmission, and change the fuel filter, if that isn't the problem. If it persists, try changing the oil and filter in the transmission.

My 2004 ford freestar van is hesitating going down the road. i change the egr valve . could it be the fuel filter

most likely not the fuel filter- try plugs and wires... could be a number of things, if the vehicle runs fine while in park and doesnt hesitate, most likely is sprk plugs and wires or a transmission problem...

My car hesitates and slowsdown while driving

The fuel filter is in the gas tank with the fuel pump - it's actually a 'SOCK' that filters fuel before it enters the pump. Odds are it's not the filter. Odds are you have a Throttle Position Sensor which is going bad (bad spots in the potentiometer). Erratic resistance changes sending BAD signals to the Engine Control Module and Transmission Control Module ECU & TCM. A good technician knows how to check it with an analog ohm meter.

2004 dodge caravan 2.4 Hesitates during Acceleration and at idele

You should definitely replace the fuel filter though this probably won't fix your hesitation. It wouldn't hurt to replace the spark plugs this is usually the culprit on these engine. I have the same engine in a '99 caravan and found the for some reason the spark plugs on cylinder 3 and 4 loosen up after one year and cause a misfire between 45 and 50 mph under load (when mildly accelerating).
