You may be suffering from leaky injectors as far as the smell at startup. I would check for codes in memory on this car if it has a computer that will do that. Also I would consider the throttle position sensor. Im sure that somwhere you will find a bad sensor or worn injector.

2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

Hi I have a 2002 Corolla with an apexi, when driving it can start to splutter a bit and I have to put my accelerator down fully just to maintain the revs, then as the car slows I have to change down a gear...


Most common problem is the IAC(Idle Air Control) valve.But if you say some times work I will suspect the throttle is clogged. Remove the Air hose,apply full throttle and hold, spray carburetor cleaner on clot using thin long nose player clean inside wall and throttle. don't spray directly inside because the carb cleaner is to aggressive for some of the gasket.
Good Luck

I have a 1987 2.8 litre olds ceria it has 60000 kilometers it belonged to old coulple never drove it . It runs like new car but after maybe 40 minutes of driving when you come to stop and try to go again...


It's the TCC solenoid in the transmission. It is under the pan that is on the side of the transmission.TCC is for torque converter clutch. You can un plug the the wires that go into the front of the transmission until you get it replaced, you just wan't have overdrive. But you can drive it.

Replaced battery now wont idle


hold revs up for approx 5-10 seconds then slowly bring back to idle if it still stalls have to adjust air bleed screw in throttle body to adjust idle speed
ECU needs to relearn must put in gear then turn on a/c while in gear idling and then turn on head lights then put in neutral while other things are on then turn off all things and go for drive

I put the car in gear and drive 30 to 50 yards and then it stalls. the car starts and idles good. i can rev it up to 3000 rpm's whith out it stalling but as soon as i try to driv it it stalls.


There is an electrical connection located on the transmission. Disconnect the connector and try to drive it again. This will help to determine if the problem is located in the transmission or engine related.
Let me know.
