"Pulling" when speeding up

Seemed to "pull up" when merging onto the freeway, then recovered. Now appears to pull when speeding up. What could this mean?

You need to change the oil thre times every 3000 miles and youll feel the difference. It happens because you take a long time to change the oil and it creates oil clots and it is harder for the pistons to move

Symptoms are those of a clutch up for replacement. There's a thin layer of clutch plate left before the rivets holding the plates hit the metal clutch surface. The effects you describe are quite normal.

There are 2 flavors of clutch replacement - new and refurbished. Both usually can be obtained through a WV dealer. The difference is usually warranty and price.

Electric engine cooling fan seems to run constantly-

it is going to kick on within a few minutes of starting it up, almost always unless running at freeway speeds, and for a few minutes after turning it off. if it is running more than that you have a problem in the temp sensor, the relay, or the car's electronic controller.

Throw in some racing fuel to clean out your injectors or even run your gas all the way out and throw in injector cleaner with supreme gas then run that tank empty before filling up again.

how it seems that your problem is in the tranmission. has the transmission ever had the fluid changed in it? if not then i would have it checked out and changed. it might even be a bad sensor causing the engine to free spin and not engage the transmission i would defently have the transmission checked out.
