The trans is slipping. check the level. with the engine hot, remove the dipstick and wipe clean. it will be located where the engine and trans meet. make sure it's not the oil dipstick. insert the stick and remove. the level should be between the lines or holes. if the fluid level is between those marks, don't add any. the type of fluid is printed on the dipstick. if the level is low add enough to the full mark only. add small quantities. 1/2 qt at a time. then check the level. if the level is good, have the trans fluid and filter changed. if that desn't work, there are mechanical problems.

My Nissan sentra fn15 with a ga15 engine, the rev counter does not change with rpm increase, drive car for 10 mins it slowly goes to 5-600 rpm, it also stalls sometimes, are they related


WHAT YEAR? CAR.
the engine tachometer reads what.
that whole post is a contradiction.
ahh, you mean the engine does not accelerate, or the engine bogs.
600 RPM is why below, 800 normal (most cars)
the engine stalls, well sure it will as low idle speed will surely do.
so the real post is my engine stalls.
and if i try WOT ,it will go above 600 rpm in or out of gear?
wot means wide open throttle.
can the engine race to 3000RPM in PARK (or neutral)
if engine power is ok, full WOT power up a hill and is only and idle problem say some. and we work bad idle.

the top reason for stalls (besides #1 never ever doing the 60k mile service,repeats at every 60k)_
is a stuck open EGR (part of same service to do that but Ill add that)
or stuck closed ISC (electric IAC)

Rpm does not drop below 1000


No,only on carburated engines it,idles down to the set point,on yours,it's fuel injected,pushing gas pedal won't kick idle down,should go down after a certain amount of time,does it automatically,If you start and drive a 5 mile ride and stop at a stop sign,it should idle at it's set point if there's no engine problems,which may be.5 to .7 on your tac.When you normally first start,it will idle between 1000 to 1200 rpm's,don't push on gas,let idle say 15 seconds,put in drive and go.

How to fix this problem?


A big vacuum leak will do this it can be from a open PCV valve sticking open EGR valve to a sticking a IAC (idle air control valve) sticking open. You basically have something get stuck and closing.

My Toyota Camry 96 isn't starting. New battery the alternator and starter are working properly and there are new spark plugs . The engine is turning over and it's getting fuel but it just doesn't start....


Faulty MAP or MAF sensor, EGR valve stuck open, spark plug wires don't match firing order, large vacuum leak to intake manifold, very dirty fuel injectors, idle air control valve defective, poor compression in cylinders due to incorrect valve timing or leaking fuel injector o-ring seals.

Ticking in motor, then stops for about a month, then starts ticking again. oil changed. in nuetral it wont rev past 3500 rpm


It wont rev past 3500 in driving?
The governer on these is set to NOT allow a higher rev when car is stopped and not in gear.
Try to change oil viscosity or filter manufacturer.Some filter manufactures put in a bypass valve that kicks in too early.

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
