Sounds like the motor is running lean with fuel, check the fuel pressure

Car won't start. Gas pedal goes to floor with no feel to it.


If i am understanding your question correctly, when you push your gas petal down, there is no resistance to it or very little. If this is the case, I would raise the hood and track the linkage to the intake throttle body. there should be a spring on it to return the accelerator to the idle position. you may also look under the dash board above the gas petal as it may have a spring as well that will return it to the idle position.

Real loud knocking noise when i turn or put it in reverse and hard to get it to go past 30 mph


Go with a completely damaged & blocked exhaust converter

Air In --Air Out Yours doesn't go out & the trans gets confused
& can't use the shift strategy it was born with

That is the 30 mph or a gas filter really clogged,not real likely

What is with the noises?

Turning & just sitting still?

What was the trans shop diagnoses,was it test driven
& did you go alone,have to do that

Your car --so your part of the solution,be proactive

My 2002 H1, bogs out going up hills. What is wrong?


I never had a Hummer but I can tell you a couple of things to check. Make sure your fuel(every 30000 miles) and air filter are new. The other thing,my 2001 monte carlo needed a new catalitic converter at 44000 miles.It was acting like your Hummer. I had a high-flow type installed. Yours and mine are both GM,maybe they use the same type cat. Have someone push down on the gas petal while you feel the exhaust flow coming out of the tail pipe. The flow should increase as the gas petal goes down.
I hope this helps you.

Try checking the snorkel tube between the air cleaner and the intake. Open the hood, and have a friend try to rev the engine, and watch the tube...my '92's was collapsing and starving the engine, couldn't get more than 3500-4000 rpm. Could also be a fuel pump problem like low pressure or bad line.
