It could be the fuel pressure regulator valve is at fault. Maybe its time to have a fuel pressure diagnostic run along with having the injectors flushed. How is the transmission fluid level looking, check it on the transmission dipstick whilst the engine is running (have someone engage 'drive' while both the parking and foot brakes are engaged). If it is brown and low replace the transmission filter and top up with fresh fluid

SOURCE: 2002 mitsubushi lancer with 233000 miles. Car

the good thing is that it is shifting into higher gear, which i assume is an auto transmission, it means it is adapting to the extra load

hesitate, could mean a number of things.........my first question and most imprtant question, is does the car get regularly serviced, if it does not, i would suggest a tune-up, replace spark plugs, leads, distributor cap and leads etc.....
it is getting long in life, and just like all of us, we need a bit of tending care
if it has been serviced recently, speak to the mechanic to see if he recognised any faults that may contribute to it
unfortunatley the worst case scenario, is the head gasket, as these are common to go at this time, but try and keep positive

Idle will drop to 0 and increase while engine bucks stalls half the time when driving at moderate to high speed. when starting out 1-3 gears it shifts slightly rough with some hesitation.


Sounds like you need a tuneup. If you can't do it yourself take it to a competent mechanic certified in your vehicle brand and model.

My car has trouble shifting uphill and in low gears


When a car is going uphill, it has to use more power to get up the hill. Most automatic transmission cars will automatically detect this, and shift into a lower gear to get the car up the hill easier. As you get to the top or let off the gas, the car should than shift into a higher gear to maximize fuel efficiency. What does your transmission seem to do? Not want to go into a lower gear, are the RPMs jumping up and down before it shifts?

Going about 20 mph rpms will jump it acts like it is in neutral its an 02 mitsubshi lancer es with about 154000 miles its done this same thing just at a higher speed it would do this then it quit doing it...


Have the transmission seviced. check the condition of the old fluid. if it smells burnt you may need ferther repairs, but try just having it serviced or flushed first you may be able to save yourself a very expensive repair.

I just bought a 2001 pontiac grand am se with 99890 miles. I would like to know what rpm is the proper shift point from first to second gear? Mine shifts at like 3000 to 3500 rpm and shifts firmly is that...


Hello,well at what rpm it shifts at of course depends on how hard your pressing the accelerator at that moment,if you floor the accelerator it will shift at higher rpm (red line) but if you take off very slowly it should shift at a much lower rpm....but to answer your question 3000-3500 is a good shifting rpm( if the gauge red lines at 6000-6500 rpm) and firm shifting is a good thing,slow,sluggish and hesitant shifting is a sign of bad things to come from a tranny!! ps keep the engine oil,and transmission oil changed for long life out of your car engine and tranny. good luck and enjoy your new car......yz-maniac.

Loss of power uphills and shifting improperly.


It sounds very much like your clutch is slipping. If the engine revs continue to rise when in gear and the car does not increase it's speed accordingly then if it is a manual car then you need a new clutch.
