Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Engine seems to bog down and not want to go. Sometimes the engine races but when the transmission shifts it seems to bog down again. When going uphill the problem seems worse. I have blown through the fuel filter so it isn't clogged. The fuel pump is a lifetime gaurentee pump that has less than 5k miles on it. I'm thinking a throttle positioning sensor, but I am very open to input. Thank You, Andre

Check the pcv valve for blockages and then also check to see that your timing is on and that the engine is firing right.

1997 ford contour 4 cylinder transmission shift real hard transmission oil level is to much overdrive light flashes sometimes ,aLso when its not shifting right it sounds like the motOr is racing


the racing you hear is most likely a slipping in the transmission. in terms you may understand is this,you're giving the car gas,but the gas does'nt work,you hear the engine roaring,but slow motion?if this is the case,you may need a transmission fluid filter and fluid change,this may help.depending on how long the problems been going on. 3.0 engines are really good motors.but the transmissions behind the engine demand clean fluid,filter. is your check engine light on? the hard shift tells me somethings wrong already.you may only have a bad speed sensor. suggest you move towards the speed sensor. if the chck engn lghts on. do what i described above. if not,no light on,suggest you reset your computer by disconnecting the positive cable from your battery for 10minutes.this will reset the whole system and keep in mind that any existing problems will keep arising. good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Of course the first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level. Next have car scanned for codes, if there is a speed sensor malfunctioning, the transmission would go into limp mode. In limp mode, only reverse and second gear work. Many auto parts stores will scan your car for free. I hope this helps.

This is an electric shift transmission (4L60E). If the harness is not plugged in well enough or has dirt in the plug it can lose contact causing it to seem as if it is bogging. What is essentially happening is that it is starting out in 1st initially, but when you slow or stop it doesn't go into 1st again and tries to go in 2nd. You can go undewr the truck and check th connection. If this doesn't resolve the issue, I would return the truck to the repair shop and have them check to assure that the plugs are correct in the valve body driving the shift solenoids.

Shifting issues with a 2003 dodge neon sxt


Here's what I found one my old 95' neon. On top of where the shifter linkage attaches to transmission is another half moon shaped (if i remember correctly) linkage that control the throttle valve operation, for kickdown etc for passing. Mine would seize up occasionally from the weather etc & it would hang in lower gear forever before shifting up, then shift down hard when stopping. It even made my gas pedal stiffer to push. It's hard to see it without removing some things out of the way on drivers side. Anyway, that little piece on top of shift linkage has to move very freely. When you get to it, spray it with lots of penetrating lube like WD-40 and shaft it sits on top of & keep working it by hand until you can move it all the way, both ways, easily. Then apply a good coat of white lithium grease or similar to keep it lubed up. I had to do mine about 3 times in 5 years. Give it a try & let me know. I do have a picture somewhere of what /where it is, so if your stuck or not sure, let me know and I'll see if I still have it.
