When put in drive step on gas pedel car move slow no top speed


Hello


The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Drive cycle for 2002 grand prix


To get all the monitor ready you are a 2 trip.What this mean the vehicle must see a cold start up then approach 210 F. with a drive cycle at part throttle at 40 mph. and a decel for 2 minutes without stepping on the brake. Then is must see another cold start up and warm up twice.

Vibration in the drive train at 40 mph in my 1993 Ford 150


I would check the driveshaft universal joints and the play in the yolk joints where the driveshaft exits the transmission and where it enters the differential.
It could be the preliminary vibration caused by the deterioration in a universal joint, forewarning you that it's on the way out. Good Luck Vern

2002 Windstar. Automatic transmission has begun to make a whirring sound when decelerating above 40 mph. Sounds very much like decelerating with a manual transmission when the clutch is not released. Pitch...


Sounds like a bad torque converter. When the torque converter is engaged, it's not "whirring" it's on decel or freewheel that it "whirs".Did you check fluid level and color?

Whirring noise - Saturn VUE


Greg,
Sounds like wheel bearing issues. I've had my front wheel bearings replaced twice on an 02 Vue AWD V-6. The 02-07 Vues use the same wheel bearings and they are a known issue with these
cars. Another problem with these cars is the rear support bearing for the drive shaft in the AWD models. I recommend having the wheel bearings and rear carrier bearing checked out. Good luck.
