Not shifting into drive......how you going 60mph? downhill with the wind behind you?

You put it in drive and its "not shifting into drive" what happens then? If it doesn't shift into drive, you're not moving. If you're moving, You can feel it shift. The rpms change. keep track.

Just picking this car up with 118,000. First is the gas mileage. Only getting around 15-17 mpg. Besides spark plugs wondering what normal rpm's should be for a 3.5 V6.


The 3.5 is a great engine and in the Concorde pretty efficient for sure over 20 MPG. The 3.5 HO is 1st generation and has a 10.4 to 1 comp ratio. 89 octane is required later engines after 1998 had the compression ration lowered to 9.9 to 1 and 87 might be acceptable. Scheduled spark-plug change is usually 60K miles. If plugs have not been changed than I would certainty start with them. Check tire pressure against the driver door recommended. I expect if all else is well that at 60 MPH just under 2000 RPM in over drive and smooth..

This engine was built in Chrysler's Trenton engine plant in MI and is considered one of the best power planets at the time.

Why won't my 2003 ford ranger 3.0 accelerate past 40km/h


Not sure what you have determined the truck is doing

If the rpm flairs the trans is slipping & done

If it won't go over 40 mph the exhaust converter is damaged
& blocked

Not much you can do,need professional help

I agree. It sounds like you are not going into overdrive or lockup.

I have an 88 Cavalier Z24 with 5sp man. transmission and a 2.8 V6 with cruise control. The car will not start. I parked it the previous night and went to start in the morning it cranks, I checked for...


Yes, the crank sensor is used both for spark timing and tach/shift switch. Check the connector and wiring first. The sensor is centered on the back of the engine. If that looks OK, put a new sensor in. They only cost $14 at autozone.

2002 auto. jetta. 2.0 4 cyl. Check engine light came on today. no precious issues. still running okay. when i put it in to "D" and go about 40 to 50 mph, my rpm is at 50 to 60 rpms. there is no change in...


did you just fill up gas? could be a bad gas cap.
only way to know is to have codes pulled out to see why lite is on. As long as lite is not flashing you are fine. If it flashes shut it off as soon as you can. But as far as rpms a
with the auto at 60 it should be more like 3000rpms(30 on yours but if you look close it is 30x100) so you may have a transmison problem or a bad tach
