Hi I'm Peter, I would say clean the throttle body and MAF sensor if you have already changed the fuel filter. If you go through all of these steps you may have some junk in the tank and when you press on the throttle as the vehicle surges a little so does the junk in the tank and it clogs up the sock filter more on the fuel pump in the tank. You may also want to check the tank vent for dirt dauber nest. It being a 96 it could well be any of the things I have mentioned if you have no codes. Make sure you have no vacuum leaks also, If it runs a little rough at idle that is an indicator. Good Luck.

Sounds like you're not getting a downshift and/or the Torque converter isn't disengaging from lock-up position.
IF it's a valve body problem,adding 2 cans of SEA-FOAM transmission treatment and following directions might free it up so it downshifts.It's worth a try.
Now a `little-known' problem with rear DRUM brakes can occur going uphill especially if a wheel bearing gets enough up-down play to let the brake shoes drag.It really CAN happen! don-ohio

97 Honda Odyssey Auto transmission downshifts

Try checking your timing to solve the ping problem, your timing might be too far advanced. For the downshifting problem, I have this same issue on my odyssey, On the top of your efi manifold you will see 2 wires that control your throttle, One of them extends to the transmission and basically lets it know when you are pressing firmly on your gas pedal, telling it to downshift. I would adjust it so the cable has some more slack in it, therefore requiring a harder press on the pedal before downshift, and hopefully a sooner upshift. You can also slightly adjust idling problems if the van is running high while in park or drive while sitting. As for the gas vapor purge code, I would first try replacing the egr valve, its only a couple bucks and takes no more than 5 minutes.

95 grand am bucks, but sometimes doesn't. It will start if i'm driving, let up on gas pedal, then press down to speed up, it bucks, let off the gas it stops, press again it bucks. will stop then come...

Alot of things can cause this, even a spark plug. but I would be looking at maybe a coil or ignition module issue or a weak fuel pump that is on its way out. Or maybe even a throttle position sensor. Noone can say forsure without driving it themselves and testing based on what they felt.

If its time for a tuneup I would do the plugs and wires., If you dont suspect the tuneup as being the problem I would replace the ignition module that is located in the cover that is on top of the engine covering the sparkplugs. Its a easy job. Its attached to the under side of the cover. I have seen this type of symptom several times with this car and the module is usually the culprit when everything else checks out ok.

Take it to bits again and check the gasket you put on and all the other gaskets as it still sounds like you have air sucking and a blockage somewhere else so check out all parts you done and the parts you dident

When driving (auto) in 2nd gear car jurks

If the transmission fluid was VERY low, the damage may already be done. I know on alot of Rav-4's, there is a computer problem, that causes transmission problems. basically, it wants to shift into 2 gears at once, and will eventually make the transmission come apart. BUT, it has to be replaced WITH the ECU because it will just break the new transmission. I would take it to your local Toyota dealer and have them check the ECM and transmission.
