Car will start to struggle to move and revs once the clutch is put into 3rd or 4th gear. A rubbery smell also begins to form. What could be the issue?

Sounds like a starter motor problem. Possibly a sticky solenoid. Try rocking the car or giving the starter and solenoid a hard bang with a hammer.

SOURCE: 02 jeep liberty won't shift into 3rd or 4th gear.

Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

How do i no if my clutch needs replacing in my 1997 peugeot 306 convertable


Certainly, that's one way! If the clutch is worn out, it will "slip". A way to tell is to put the car in 3rd gear and rfev the engine just alittle and then let ehte cutch "out." If the engine continues running, the clutch is slipping. You may be able to smell "something" buring as well. That would be the clutch disintegrating.

Be sure to have the flywheel inspected for damage when the clutch is replaced. It may only require resurfacing but it may need ot be replaced.

If you have a clutch cable and the car has done some miles then I suggest you invest in a new cable. The reason being that the inner cable will be frayed and jamming in the outer cable and not releasing properly or the inner cable will have worn a groove in the outer case and the result is the same.

Car revs up clean but when i drive it struggles between 2 and 3 thousand then i have to put the petrol right down to move forward


you are having an air leak. as for water in the bottom chamber of the intake its supposed to be there. air has water in it. if its water in the injection line then its down to were you get your fuel. if you are losing compression it would be down the the valves or piston rings, or a failing egr valve. can also be the wrong spark plug gap. and in some case it can be the clutch. to test clutch put in 3rd gear and try to take off if it dont move but engine revs up then it will be this. only do this once as any more times you could warp the fly wheel.

My GMC has 311632 miles on it. I just changed the 4L60E transmission a few months ago and now it wont shift out of first unless I manually put it in second gear. all the gears from park rev. nuetral works...


The transmission may be in Limp mode. The transmission is on the same fuse as the MAF, O2 sensors and at least one other sensor - if an O2 shorts out, it will blow the fuse and the trans will go into limp-home mode. Be sure the trans has power and the fuse is not blown before doing anything else.

What is "limp-home mode" ? This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

Trans does not upshift out of first, speedometer reads zero at all times: VSS failure. Easy fix on rear of transmission, but xmember must come out to access VSS.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Transmission does not shift automatically, only manually. Swap in a known-good PCM, check wiring, check other sensors such as VSS and TPS.

3rd gear starts, can manually shift through all gears. When car has been turned off for a bit, then back on it will run normally.: VSS dropoff w/ Hi-stall converter. The rpms are too high, but VSS is showing no movement. Happens after a tire burning take-off. Doesn't store a code, will not throw a CEL (I've heard that it will store a code if it happens 3 or more times). Cure: Reprogram PCM for VSS dropoff -- PCMforLess knows about it.

Here are just some of the common things you have described with the issues your transmission has. Good luck and keep me posted.

Only runs in 1st and 2nd gear and reverse.

Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line
, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Is it the clutch?


Check the linkage and make sure you havent diconected anything. If the engine revs and kinda crawls real slow it might be the clutch. If it revs and desnt move and all your linkage is good it could be your tranny.
