Transmission shudders. Now it wont accelerate

I have had the same problem (the slipping) since around 60k miles. My mechanic said to drive it till it drops. Now Im up to 120k miles and I think the transmission finally quit on me.
Driving in stop n go traffic this AM I noticed a lack of acceleration from stops. It got worse and worse to the point that I could barely pull into my parking spot from a stop.
Im headed out to check fluid levels but I think my tranny finally died on me.
Fantastic car up to this point... not sure if I will pay 3k to fix or scrap and start all over.

Always consider doing a fluid change and filter change - your description of your problem can often be solved with that. (Of course, low fluid can also cause a problem.)

2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited sport extreme shudder at 40 mph- if I press the gas-pedal and get the RPMs to rev, the shudder ceases, only to return once I am back down around 38 mph-41mph.


which engine the 3.6? v6?
that shudder is called MISFIRE.
get a tune up yet, even $1.49 spark plugs?
no its not the trans,
if it dont slip, its not trans, (see RPM races? that is slip or too low gear)
if it shifting to the right gears, its not the trans can you count them?
is the CEL lamp glowing or flashing driving, is yes, that means
scan me now. in fact scanning while it shudders, is like (magic)
why start guessing, do a tuneup,
then scan it.
if its is misfire the PCM will tell you what cylinder misfires.

are your spark plugs 6 years old, if yes, why?
going for 200k miles on them.?

Suzuki SX4 shudders on acceleration. Why?


well that depends on WHAT shudders.
the engine or the transmission or the drive shafts or tire, or or or
like Real Estate, location is every thing, with noise or vib.

if the engine shakes.?
find a mech as him to diagnosis it.

trans missions can slip or shudder
the engine can bog, misfire, shack or do lots of odd things,
find some that can tell the difference.

How to chang timing belt 2005 Kia Rio


2005 ?? and only 70k ,i dont think it needs changing yet till about 120k depending on your local ambient climate ,if in a hot dry area then 7 yrs old yes change but if in a more temperate climate then it will be good for at least till its 10 yrs old ,modern belts are far superior to older ones from the 90s ,Then entrust it to a mechanic because one slip up can ruin the engine ,i would not recomend this job to a weekend mechanic who needs to ask on here how to do it ,yes i can tell you and its not difficult but the consequences of making a mistake ??

I bought used Optima 2004 with mileage around 120k, i'm worried about the timing belt. Should I change it now? When should we make second or third change after the 60k timing belt change.


to be on the safe side id change the belt every 55,000 to 65;000 miles make sure u change the belt tensioner as well they fail more than the belt
