Try removing the floor mat.. sometimes the mat gets caught on the gas pedal and as you apply the brakes it applies the throttle. It would seem that the harder you press the faster the engine races...

There is no problem with the revs going to 3 or 6. The revs need to climb so you have enough power to climb the hill (if the car upshifts under heavy load it may stall). But are you saying that the only way you can get it to shift out of first is to turn off the car? if so, then that is obviously not supposed to happen. It should shift shortly after you start driving down hill.

Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Will motor tilte on it,s own if I unhook the wishbone on front of motor


Generally speaking, not unless the car is parked on a hill.
If you are moving the engine to gain space to the side next to the firewall, you would have to pull the engine forward and then hook it back in the wishbone or otherwise secure it in place.

You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.

My 2007 seabring won't shift out of park... Car


The car is probably on a steep hill and a lot of pressure is on the park pawl in the automatic transmission. If this is the case, a hard sudden pull should release it. Make sure the brake is on. When parking on a hill in the future use the parking brake before placing the lever in park.

Have a 1989 cutlass ciera that rolls back a little when put in park. What could that be? 2nd issue is it stalls when you come to a stop.


the rool back is down to slack in the drive line,
ie prop and back lash in the diff, there will also be some back lash in the gear box as well, this is completly normal so dont worry about it,, however you should all ways keep the foot drake on till you have put the habd brake on then and only them slip it into park as if you keep letting it rool back and stoping in park you could snap of the park claw inside the auto gear box, that a pricy repair, so please hold the brakes on before you go into park,,,
as for the stalling part,,, how fast is the tick over when warm and in gear (in drive with foot brake on)
if its less that 850 rpm thats the problem,,, auto's realy dont like a slow tick over, there is a lot of drag on an auto box, at tick over it should hold your car from rolling back on a slight hill or even drive up it with out you putting any power on to make it pull away, they also creep forwards in gear by them selfs, thats normal too,,safe,happy driving!!!!!!!

Sluggish when taking off


I had a very similar problem with my prizm, and it was mass air flow sensor. They cleaned it out, and now shes back to running good! It could also be an O2 sensor, or a regulator.

Good luck!
