First thing is to check your transmission fluid when it is at normal operating temperature. The shutting off problem could be a lot of things.have your vehicle checked for codes,pep boys advanced auto and some others will do this for free.

Gas pedal wont go down once in gear


I would check a few things. first the engine mounts. make sure the engine isn't rocking over. second cruise control ? if it has cruise control I would unhook the cable to the throttle from the cruise control and see if that was the issue. some times the control box will pull in deceleration mode and stick there. also the decelerator valve on the throttle body may be defective.

My dodge dakota will not idle and the battery keeps going dead


The problem with a lot of dodges is that the computer will loose the idle memory when battery power is lost, to regain the idle just hold the gas pedal a little to keep engine running for about 2-3 min then release the pedal and it will idle on its own, if the battery goes dead it will loose idle again.



As far as the battery going dead you will need to check a few things, first have the battery tested a bad battery that doesnt hold a charge can test good and still be bad due to it can not hold a charge. the battery is charged and if it tests good try this, unhook one battery terminal over night or for as long as it takes to drain normally. if the battery goes dead unhooked then the battery is your problem.

At the same time the battery is tested have the alternator tested. Make sure its tested good. what i mean is tested at idle with all acc on, like lights heater, rear defoger and etc.


Hope this helps. good day

98 vw beetle wont go in reverse


I have a 1998 and I just confronted the same problem. It seems to take like 1 gear in reserve and like 2 gear in 1 gear. Any thoughts? I don't really it should be the transmission since it still works going forward in 2 different gears. Thanks.

I have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring and i just had the starter changed and now it shuts off when you take your foot off the gas pedal? it drove fine for about 5 mins but now when you take your foot off the gas...


try unhooking the battery and cleaning the throttle body. Open it up and clean it with an old tooth brush and carb cleaner, now hook up the battery. crank it up, hold the throttle halfway down until it clears up and runs smooth. now slowly let off the gas and it may idle ok. If not you may need to take it to a shop and have th e"adaptives and the Idle Air" rest using a scanner.

I had the same problem on my 1984 F-250. Only mine would go in reverse just fine. The problem i had is my forward clutch went out. After you make sure you have pleanty of tranny fluid take it strait to a shop to have it rebuilt. Or see if you can find one at a pick-a-part
