Try the fuel filter. If you have had the plugs, wires changed it may be the fuel filter.

Your description sounds more like a torque converter clutch problem. It would explain the poor mileage, having to floor it to go. I suggest having the transmission scanned, looking at the slip speed of the torque converter clutch.

Car is chugging a little bit at 45mph


The first thing that comes to my mind is "45 MPH"... and let me explain why.....

Your engine you said is running GREAT so a MPH is not going to effect the running of the Car but what happens @ 45 MPH you ask?

Your Torque Converter goes into Lock up.... If the Torque Converter is slipping in and out of lock up, you are going to have an irregular pulsating of the engine playing catch up.

you need to do this, try and drive the vehicle (you did not say what kind of vehicle it is), and drive it without the OVERDRIVE On...

So drive it and see if it is RPM RELATED. If there is no CHUG and you can go all the way to 55-60 without issue, Slow down below 45 and put the OD IN and accellerate and see what happens..

Is the Problem SPEED RELATED? Is it RPM Related?

If it does not happen with it OUT of OD, then what you probably have is a Torque Converter Failing...

I hope this helps

WHAT IS THE ALTITUDE? MOST ENGINES WILL LOSE POWER WHEN THICKER AIR IS PULLED IN CAUSING IMPROPER COMBUSTION. THE COMPUTER CANNOT COMPENSATE FOR A DENSER AIR FUEL MIXTURE. IF YOU DRIVE THIS ROUTE A LOT....GO TO A HOTTER SPARK PLUG

I have a 2002 Grand Am. Got the transmission checked and was told it's fine. It does not put out any codes and oil looked fine also. Around 3rd gear it feels to shift early. When I give it gas, it seems...


if your driving it normal your shift points should be from 1st to 2nd=18 to 22 mph
2nd to 3rd=28 to 32mph
3rd to od=48 to 50mph
these all change by how much throttle pressure is being use,
are you sure it's not fuel filter or plugs and wire surge your feeling

Check your tire balance. When you have an out of balance tire or a belt in the tire has shifted you will experience a shacking only at a certain speed.

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).
