Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

1997 pontiac sunfire GT Transmission problem?

When my car is in drive, the rpm is high but it barely moves at first, it takes a while to get up to speed. Way slower than it should take. it has barely any power, i dont think it would be able to get over a speed bump if i slowed down. When the car is in reverse, it is normal and way more powerful than in drive. Is this maybe a trasmission problem? a sensor maybe?

If you have a Manual transmittion it sounds as if your clutch has just about had it. If your vehical is an automatic more then likely the trans is slipping

I have a 1997 mercedes benz s500 gas meter is not working properly slow acceleration seems the transmission may be slipping slow on take off car shaking in park and diving


If the RPM's go high and barely moving. The transmission is slipping. Eventually it will stop moving when the clutches are completely worn out. The more you drive it like this, the more internal damage you can cause. The shaking could be this also. But you could need a tune up, or could have bad engine mounts.

How do I know if my car has overdrive?


Sunfires and cavaliers always reved a bit higher because of the way they are built but it is an AEOD transmission (Automatic Electronic OverDrive). Since I dont know what rpm and how fast you are going it is hard to tell if there is a probleme or not. I would compare with another similar car and decide what to do.

Engine rmps will not back down


If this happened all of a sudden, It sounds like a Vacuum leak. I would inspect the vacuum hoses for brakes or cracks. Is the Rpm too high to test drive and see how the vehicle is running?
