Drain your oils into seperate cans, with coffee filters over the cans. If you see any metal shavings, stop driving it, and make sure it hasn't slipped/ground internal gears, etc.

When I try t accelerate to pass or go uphill the rpms increase but the vehicle does not accelerate. Tranny fluid is full.


Sounds like either a bad transmission pump or torque converter. Have the vehicle evaluated by a transmission shop.

I have a 2002 Celica GT 5-Speed and I shift at about 4k RPMs when getting on the highway and I still feel I'm accelerating to slow. Am i doing something wrong?


Not driving a corvette? Just kidding. More details are important. How slow is your acceleration? Is it 0-60 in 8 seconds, or 20 seconds? What is redline on your car? If redline is 5K then 4000 is a good responsible shift point. If redline is 8K then shifting at 4000 is probably robbing your engine of it's torque and horsepower band. I believe the GTS model has an 8K RPM redline, the GT may be lower, but in that case, shifting at 4K is too soon for strong acceleration. Your Tachometer should have redline clearly marked. For responsible use, stay below that, maybe 10-20%. For economy stay further still, but for power you need to let the engine use it's RPMS, especially smaller and fewer cylinder engines usually don't make their power until they are half way through the RPM range and above.

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy that has around 93,000 miles on it. The last oil change was 2 weeks ago. Today, on a trip on the interstate, I pulled off to have dinner. When I left the restaurant and started...


If the trucks engine rev'd up when you first put the gas pedal down, but didn't go anywhere then it was probably in neutral (not drive as you thought). If it was in drive and still didn't go anywhere but engine still rev'd up then its a transmission issue or PRNDL switch at the side of the tranny. I can't see anything relating to the gas pedal by NOT reving up the engine when it was pressed down. I wouldn't suspect a throttle cable issue. Check the tranny fluid while truck is running in park, see if the fluid is badly burnt or low on the dipstick. If it looks good I would have the PRNDL switch checked. (Park Reverse Neutral Drive and Low) switch.
