No speed when gas pedal is to floor tranny light came on


With the oil light coming on and the brake pedal being hard to press I would say that the engine stopped hence no vacuum -no power assist from the booster.- hard brake pedal. The lock uo feeling may come from the engine seizing up while you were still in gear

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power a 2500-3000rpm when you accelerate hard on the gas pedel, hower if you press down on the gas pedal slowly the power will increase all the way up to 6000rps with no power...


Sounds like your fuel filter is getting clogged up. Get that changed and it will be fixed. Should be an easy, cheap fix. Hope this helps, James Booth :))

I have 2000 olsmobile intrigue and i haveproblems with my car shuting off when driving mainly when pressing on gas


Hi Mariah
The problem could be the fuel air mixture when you press the gas pedal the vehicle will try to pull in more fuel into the engine now if for example your fuel pump isn't functioning well then this could account for the sudden vehicle turning off however you don't go into detail if the vehicle just stalls or if all electronics go off too.
If the electronics go off too it could be a combination of the alternator and the vehicle drawing too much power. Have you had that replaced lately?
A quick check is to have the air and fuel filters checked on this vehicle too. Usually to have both replaced is about 100 dollars and can be a very quick fix... On this vehicle the fuel filter needs to be replaced every 70,000 km. So check that first if the vehicle only stalls.
If that resolves it fantastic however if it doesn't have a mechanic hook your car up to a code analyzer and he will tell you what the car is telling him when the car shuts off.

HOW TO KNOW WHEN SHALL I CHANGE CLUTCH DESK?


To reduce clutch disc/plate problems, avoid riding the clutch whilst driving, ie having ur foot on the clutch pedal when the engine is in operation, especially wqhen the vehicle is in motion. You see the clutch disc is sandwiched between the flywheel of the engine & the pressure plate. When the driver presses the clutch pedal, the sandwiching of the clutch plate is released, so therefore no drive is being transmitted from the engine to the road wheels. This gives an effect as if the vehicle is in neutral (engine can be revved, with no movement or propulsion of the vehicle). When the driver releases the clutch pedal, the clutch disc is now sandwiched tightly causing the drive to be transmitted to the road wheels which will now cause the vehicle to be propelled.

Clutch discs are only replaced when there are problemes with clutching in and changing gears. After constant pressing of the clutch, the asbestos material on the clutch disc after a period grinds down (clutch disc becomes thinner), which in turn will reduce friction characteristics when all the elements are sandwiched. This causes a slipping effect, preventing the drive from being transmitted to the road wheels efficiently. This causes other problems such as high fuel consumption, erratic engaging of gears, hard selecttion of gears, heavy vibration of the vehicle, stalling; just to name a few. In most cases an unusual smell of the clutch disc is observed.

Also just by resting ur foot on the clutch pedal while engine is running can be dmagaing too. You see the clutch release bearing rests on the pressure plate, so when the clutch pedal is pressed by the driver, there is a degree of friction being placed on the bearing because the pressure plate is always rotating with the engine. The clutch release bearing is stationery until the clutch pedal is pressed by the driver, which sends it into the moving pressure plate, so less pressing on the clutch pedal the less friction between the bearing and the pressure plate. Only operate/press/place foot on the clutch when necessary

Car turns off when driving while pressing the gas pedal. I'm thinking is sucking air and turning off.


Had the same problem with the same make, model and year of vehicle. Ended up replacing the fuel pump.
