Engine lacking power and slow getting up to speed, engine is a V6

5 speed and shifting is OK, car starts to buck in 3rd gear then is fine after a few seconds. Changed the timing belt, air filter, spark plugs, temp sender and new wires. The problem happened prior to the new hardware.

Sounds like you need gearbox oil (transmission oil in USA) .... check your levels and top it up.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.

you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

SOURCE: 2000 Celica GT-S. Engine 'bucking' anywhere from idle to wot

locate the mass air flow sensor. it's located inline with the air intake. it should be right after the air filter. disconnect the plug and see if the car runs better. also, when tapping on it lightly on the sensor with a screwdiver handle and the engine skips, could also indicate a bad sensor. these sensors will not always set the check engine light. suspecting the fuel system is also a possibility

Testimonial: "You were right on the money. The problem was the mass airflow sensor. Its amazing how one bad sensor can make an otherwise great engine run like a pig. The sensor has been replaced and a broken wire to the sensor fixed, now it runs flawlessly. "

Why will my 94 Buick Regal run fine in 2nd and 3rd gear but not when I shift into overdrive?


You are lugging the engine. Overdrive is only for use in top gear when you get to cruising speed to reduce the engine speed.

Suzuki Forenza error code P0782


Well code 782 is for a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid or the circuit back to the engine computer. The solenoid is inside the transmission.
Code 722 was for a problem with the speed sensor. You could have a wiring harness problem.

I have a 94 Pontiac Grand Am SE 5 speed standard with the 2.3L SOHC Quad 4-138 4 cyl engine. It idles fine; but when you go and shift the car bucks and has little power. Better be going 30 mph before...


This sounds like it may be misfiring, the quad four engine is famous for misfiring theres a coil cover under the top plate where the sparkplugs go, if you remove the 4 bolts and pull it up you will see the sparkplugs and that cover will contain coils and coil cover and boots, i would replace the sparkplugs and the coil cover and sparkplug boots, heres some pictures of the parts, this is where i would start it a tune up, and also check air filter and replace fuel filter,johnjohn2_31.jpgjohnjohn2_32.jpg

Hi - we have a Landrover Discovery II 2002 model - automatic. The M and S lights come on and flash, when this happens there is sometimes a 'clunk' noise. The vehicle is fine if it is going at speed, but...


hi your problem could be the wiring connector to the m&s switch on top of the gear box these connecters can get water in then corrode when the warning lights come on your autobox defaults into 3rd gear which is why you get the slow to move lack of power symptom .
you can get to the wiring from underneath or from above if you strip out the gear shift and console

hope this helps

1997 Ford Taurus, Won't Shift Past 3rd Gear


Ford is very common for tranny problems. Most likely your tranny will have to be rebuilt. As a mechanic myself, I would suggest taking to tranny specialist to see if i needs to be rebuilt, or if the electrical unit is faulty. It will have to be tested with voltmeter/ohmmeter/multi-tester

If there is a problem with the 3-4 solenoid then a check engine light would be on or the OD light would be flashing. Read the faultcodes and see what is there.
