It probably takes off from a stop very sluggish too. It appears your trans is in fault mode "Limp In". The trans controller sees a problem and can't compensate so it stays in second gear. You need to take this to a transmission specialist that can scan the faults and troubleshoot the issue. If you don't know a trustworthy one then I suggest going to the nearest "Five Star Chrysler Dealer". They will have the technical knowledge and training to effectively deal with it. There is a possibility that the software is more of an issue than internal transmission failure. And do yourself a favor, have the transmission serviced after they solve the issue.
Good luck with that and let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: '99 Dodge Durango, car shuts off after starting

there is an idle control motor on the throttle body. If you pull the air tube off of the throttle body and look to the rear of the throttle butterflies you will see the passage for the air to flow through to the idle air control motor. You should also see the tip of the pintle of the IAC. Use a screw driver and carefully push/pry the pintle back into the throttle body.

If the vehicle starts and idles than remove the IAC (2 torx screws hold it to the throttle body) and clean it with some carb spray. Clean the bore that it sits in as well with carb spray.

If the pintle on the IAC looks like it has wear marks in it replace it.

This is a fairly common problem with the dodge trucks.

well there are alot of problems that can cause this irst things first... have the codes checked these will tell you alot. or atleast point you in the right direction. I you are not able to get the PCM scanned then you are looking at alot of testing, check the fuel pressure, make sure the fuel regulator is holding the pressure correctly. then make sure the injectors are pulsing correctly. then on to the throttle possition sensor you need to make sure its ready the sweep proporly, then onto the idle air control motor if its equiped with one. well that should keep you busy or a while if its none of those then ill keep working down the line.
good luck.

92 ACCORD what causes the gauges to quit working when the brake pedal is depressed, another problem is turning on the headlights and the engine dies any answer's ?


Hi Christopher:
I'd be checking to make sure that the grounds are nice and clean and working properly. When you step on the brake pedal you are activating a switch that sends power to the brake lights. The brake lights share bulbs with the signals and emergency flashers, so it is also possible that a dead short in any of those components could "steal" the power from the ignition.
At this point, it's a trouble shoot game for you to figure out what is working, and what is not.
That's part of the fun. Enjoy.

Car surging


Is the car equipped with the Automatic Transmission?
If so, read on.
Otherwise skip to the end and answer some questions.

POSSIBLE SCENARIO:
I have observed a condition where my car surges slightly when the torque-converter clutch (TCC) cycles between lock and unlock when driving on an uphill grade.
First some basics and history that will explain why the TCC is used.

Engine, Torque Converter, TCC, and Transmission relationship--
The TCC allows for a solid connection between the engine and transmission which allows the input to the transmission to rotate at the same speed as the engine.
Without a TCC, there is slippage between the engine and automatic transmission. The slippage is greatest at low engine RPM. That is what allows the engine to run with the automatic transmission in gear, like when you first shift into gear or stop at a stop sign. When the throttle pedal is depressed, the engine RPM begins to increase and the torque converter begins to slip less and less the more the engine RPM increases. The car moves. But even at cruising speeds the torque converter slips slightly. Engine RPM is greater than transmission input RPM, which is realized as slight decrease in fuel efficiency.
When acceleration is complete and a constant speed is being maintained, the engine power output is reduced to the point where the TCC can engage and eliminate any slippage between the engine and transmission. If the car has a tachometer the engagement of the TCC can be verified when a slight reduction in engine RPM observed without a corresponding change in vehicle speed.
One method used to test the operation of the TCC is as follows:
Find a flat section of road where it is safe to perform the test.
Reach a steady speed and keep the gas pedal depressed with one foot. While observing the tachometer (or listening for an increase in engine RPM), with the other foot depress the brake pedal enough to activate the break light switch but not enough to engage the brakes. When the brake light switch activates, the TCC receives a signal to disengage. With the gas pedal being held steady, release the brake pedal and the engine RPM should decrease when the TCC engages.
Old cars with Automatic Transmissions did not use a TCC. I believe the TCC was put in use in an attempt to increase fuel economy.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH SIMILAR SYMPTOMS
The condition that causes that issue on my car is this:
- A slight uphill grade increases the load on the engine.
The car tends to gradually slow and it is necessary to depress the gas pedal to maintain speed.
- Depressing the throttle pedal (manually, or automatically with cruise control engaged) signals the torque converter clutch to unlock when the load increases slightly. (A more drastic load increase would signal the Transmission to downshift to a lower gear.) The corresponding increase in engine RPM and output is enough to compensate for the reduction in speed. When the vehicle speed, engine RPM, and throttle position stabilize to the point that the TCC will engage and the engine RPM will reduce in correspondence with TCC engagement. Now, if the road conditions have not changed, power output is not enough to maintain vehicle speed. With the increased load caused by full engagement between engine and transmission, and the cycle (surging) repeats itself until the road conditions change.

Does that help?
If not:

QUESTIONS
Please define the symptoms.
What are the road conditions when the surge occurs? (A slight uphill grade?)
What is the frequency of the surge?
Does the engine power output have a noticeable surge?
Is there a speed change related to the surge?
Does the tachometer move up and down with little or no change in vehicle speed?
Are all instrument indication in the normal range?
What else has changed?

Good luck!

No.2 and 3 are misfiring. did a tune up and engine runs but dies when put to drive


might be the idle air control valve, without it functioning the engine wont be getting air into the cylinders and not run unless the gas pedal is depressed

Engine will turn over, but not catch. I can depress the gas pedal to inject the carburetor, and gain rpm's but as soon as I let the key back off to the "run" position, everything dies. This occurs


I suspet you have a bad starter solinoid you may have a seperate solonide by the battery .if this is not the problem try a new ignition switch if this was helpful please leave me great feed back

Low power


First thing to do is get the computer scanned for trouble codes. The codes will point you to what needs to be tested.
Chances are its the throttle position sensor, but it could be several other things.

Its very possible that you have internal vacuum leak in your power brake booster.Usually you'll hear a hissing noise while depressing the brake pedal,if that noise is evident then you have a faulty booster.

1999 honda accord idle problem: Car won't start just turning the key only when pressing the gas pedal down will it start and can hold the rpm at 1+ with gas pedal down but if you let go of the gas pedal it...


Is the engine light on, if so have them read? Take a look the charging system (see if it is above 13volts and below 16volts), see if the gas cap is on firmly and the o-ring on it is in good shape, look at the cars maintenance history and see how long its been since the last complete tune-up. If there are no codes recorded then it would probably be a mechanical issue, Look at coils, fuel pressure, timing, and injectors. If you need more specific info, just let me know, Good luck.
