Question about 1998 Subaru Impreza

1 Answer

98 subaru won't accelerate

If you push the throttle half way or more under 2000 rpm the car will not accelerate/jolts and lunges. I let up on the gas [less than half way depressed] and the car will feel normal. It does this in every gear.

You have a bad (clogged) fuel filter. Have it replaced, they're cheap, you should be fine after that.

Car jolts when accelerating


HAVE YOU THE SOLUTION TO YOUR PROBLEM? I FEEL I HAVE A VERY SIMILAR PROBLEM. WHEN I PUSH THE ACCELERATOR FULL THROTTLE, WHEN THE 3 GEAR PASS TO 4 GEAR I HAVE A VIOLENTLY KICK. BUT IF I DON`T PUSH FULL THROTTLE THE TRANSMISSION FEELS GOOD. IF YOU HAVE A SOLUTION PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I ALL READY CHANGE THE VALVE BODY, ALSO I TRY WITH AN OTHER COMPLETE TRANSMISSION, BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE SAME.

2000 mitsubishi eclips gas pedal sticks


replace the accelerator cable (moisture gets in the vinyl coated cable, and cable rusts and sticks, you can possibly spray wd-40down the inside of cable, and on the spring and shaft coming off the plenum/throttle body(cable connects to this on motor side of cable) this may get you thru for awhile, but eventually the cable will break

06 titan truck won't accelerate even when the gas


If the engine RPM's increase when the gas pedal is floored, you have a transmission problem or a problem with your shift cables.

If the engine RPM's don't change when the gas pedal is floored, you have a throttle pedal cable problem or throttle body problem.

You will need an experienced mechanic to diagnose this problem as it is very dangerous to operate the vehicle under these conditions.

Gas peddle won't produce rpm's. kind of a rough idle. Vehicle will move when put into gear and brake released but pressing gas does nothing.. (automatic)


did you check and see if the cable snapped for the accelerator, have someone push the peddle a few times and you watch to see if the accelerator lever that the cables connect to move if not they obviously broke and need to be replaced

Why would my rpm jump and make my car seem to jolt forward? i was told it could be the camshaft sensor,or the throttle position sensor...any suggestions?


The TPC ( throttle position control) or the IAC (Idle Air Control) is defective. The TPC is bolted on behind throttle control. Takes very small hands to remove it. Symtoms are the engine will speed up to ~ 2000 or more RPM when the gas peddle is released. Almost like the Toyota problem. But you can apply the brakes to slow it down or stop.

The eng. will not go over 2000 rpm


disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body and try to rev the engine

if still cannot rev past 2000 then suspect MAF (mass air flow sensor) or the throttle body...remove the snorkel and check to make sure the throttle plate is moving freely

finally, if when the accelerator cable is removed and rpm's rise above 2000 then suspect the accelerator cable and/or gas pedal

My legancy 2000 automatic gear shifts at ruv 3400 rpm .is it normal?


depends on gas pedal position,the lighter you are accelerating the earlier the trans should shift,if it always hangs on in gear get it looked at...as it can shift at redline (5000-6000 rpm,if you hold the gas peadl down fully).
