Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

Transmission Problem i was trying to drive my car and it wont accelerate at all. I hear myself pushing on the gas pedal but my car will just make a noise. It wont go in reverse either. I have to turn it off, restart it and it will work for a minute or so and im pretty sure its the transmission. From what I've researched so far on the web my car doesnt even have a trans fluid dipstick so what am i supposed to do? Am i to go buy some fluid and if so what kind and where do i put it because i cant even find out where it goes. Please help.

Your transmission dipstick is hiding between the engine and the firewall[the wall at the back of the engine compartment];on the drivers side.look for a yellow handle.note location of dipstick tube.by using a long funnel,add fluid through dipstick tube.check owners guide in glove box.do not over fill

I was told my linkage cable between the steering column and transmission might be the reason my van won't accelerate


linkage cable only changes ratio selections
if it is faulty , it will be stuck in one gear
the reason it is not accelerating is because the accelerator pedal and the throttle control are not communicating with each other
run the fault codes to check which sensor is faulty or if any other sensor is responsible

My dodge grand caravan today threw a 700 engine code transmission module, car wont go over 25 and only has powered acceleration for first 5 seconds car is on.


700 is a generic transmission code. It went to limp mode, that's why it drives like it does. Have the codes read with a newer /better code reader or a scanner. Find out what other codes are in there.

Why wont my car accelerate?


If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

1992 buick century wont go into gear


When you push the gas pedal all the way to the floor, is the engine revving up? Does the transmission engage at all? Have you checked the transmission fluid level? Is it foamy? Do you smell something burning or burnt?

Gas pedal 'sticks' to the floor when accelerating


The gas pedal is recalled on many fords and toyotas and is a well known problem, get the pedal replaced

2001 Accent wont start, when it does it will idle but not drive


sounds stupid but the last time something like this happened it was a loose ht lead....but im sure you checked that already.
idle should be 850/900
liquid is only condensate in rear box
have you looked for an air leak in the pipe from the inlet to the brake servo?

Wont shift out of 2nd gear but used to if you would let of the accelerator and let it idle down then it would shift but wont shift at all now


Check cable from throttle linkage to transmission that operates throttle valve on transmission. Not uncommon for the linkage at transmission to be pulled all the way when gas pedal pushed for quick acceleration, or passing, and stay stuck there. Engine off, wheels blocked for safety and/or park brake on, have someone depress gas pedal all the way to the floor slowly, while you watch linkage that cable is attached to on transmission. Then as they release pedal, it should move back in opposite direction. Spray it well, with WD-40 or similar lube and get it moving by hand if necessary to make sure it is fully returning. That may be all it is.

Acceleration is not working


when you press the gas can you hear the engine accelerate if you can then that means it is your transmission if you cant it is your gas cable linkage just snap you can just replace it by removing your engine cover then add a small nut and tie it to the end of your gas linkage strech it in to the plastic arm and you can then use it to take to your mechanic to fix it properly

Check transmission


if you have over 40,000 miles on the car it may be due for a tune up and new drive belt
