When was the last time the trans fulid and filter was changed? Sounds like the filter in the trans is dirty. And if left over time will damage the transmission. Transmission fulid and filter should be changed every 35,000 to 45,000 miles. And it could be the shifting module on top of the trans (Netural Park switch)

1994 gmc sierra pickup 4.3L V6 automatic transmission experiencing difficulties with ODrive = 4th gear, and Drive = 3rd gear, engine revs up to the max properties with little to no forward motion. Rev


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.

Checking engine light maybe tranmission driving home all of a suddenly it shifts to may 1 gear going 20 milles hour. Then I stop and i put it in N I let it running then I put in ...


When you get a check engine light it means a fault has occurred and a fault code for that is in memory, now you need the fault codes or codes read to see what is going on and then troubleshoot the system.

Automatic 330i 2001, if i start accelarating at 3rd gear the RPM keep increaing and if i release the gas the car should change to next gear but i does not...at low RPMs it is working fine


the gearbox is a "fuzzy logic"system.gearchange depends on accelerator pedal position/revs/load.if you drive without depressing the gas peddle more than a third down you should find all gearchanges much smoother.(if you drive with gas peddle almost hard down all the time yhe car will hold gears longer...poss 4500 revs or more......

What does the e s button do in the 93 vw passat


E for economy, and S for sport. The button allows you to switch from normal mode E economy, to S sport mode for better acceleration and quicker down-shifts when driving in a more agressive or performance manner. The S mode will make the transmission shift at higher revs before engaging the next gear, in order to give better response. Likewise when you enter a corner and let off the throttle (gas) , most transmissions will often change to a higher gear. This is not ideal for spirited driving, because you want the revs up a bit and to stay in the lower gear to accelerate out of the corner after you have cleared the apex. For everyday driving the sport mode keeps the car from up-shifting and down-shifting too much in traffic or on windy roads etc. The emphasis is on performance rather than ultimate fuel economy in Sport. Try it out next time you feel sporty and fell the difference. But for best gas mileage leave the car in E mode for economy.

High rev when starting hyundai atos


Check the vacuum hoses, but sounds like the IAC or even the o2 sensors. The computer will pick up on the o2 sensors but not the IAC..Go to your local ADVANCE store and they will check on computer for free :)

My 1990 towncar hesitates at third gear going 38 mph it first revs then switches into the gear..also it doesnt go into passing gear when i pass a car it wont shift down..


your tranny is going out. VERY common with the 8 cylinders. Have seen it many many times. You should still be able to drive it for a year or so before it goes completely.
When it revs up just let off the gas til the rpm's go down, and then slowly give gas again.

2003 Jetta 1.8T looses power while driving


Easy DIY is to change all fuel, air, and oil filters, do full tune-up, and change ignition cables, too. See if problem goes away. Take a look at coil, too, those cars have a known coil issue and it needs replacement every 25,000 miles

1994 toyota camry sputters


hi there
sounds like you need a tune up or you need your injectors cleaned
so i will help you clean them with out getting your hands dirty but you need to follow me every step of the way.
first i will give you my tips
  1. get a high quality fuel injector cleaner that you put into your fuel tank
  2. make Shaw you have just under a full tank of fuel
  3. while i never say that one should drive a car like it is a toy you are going to have to do some harsh exhilarating during this
  4. 1000rpm is 1 revs on your dash bored so if i say do 2500rpm it means do 2.5 on your dash (that's only if you dot know what rpm means)
  5. never turn the car off while we do this
  6. please do not speed you put your life and others at risk
  7. please do not drink and drive
OK now for the step by step instructions
  1. have what you need ready to go including the injector cleaner
  2. start your car and let it warm up keep the revs just over 1000 rpm
  3. as the car is running add the fuel injector cleaner
  4. when you have done this i want you to increase the revs to about 2000rpm
  5. keep it like this for about 30 seconds
  6. after the revs are back down to 1000 rpm i want you to get ready to take it for a drive
  7. OK so take it for a light drive around your street keep it very close to home as if your car stops you don't want to have to walk a long way
  8. once you have done this for a while and you feal confident i want you to be a bit quicker in exelarating giving a bit more power remember dont speed
  9. now once you have done this i want you to take her home and let it idle for a bit
    cause you need to get ready to go for a long drive
  10. now that you have got to the bathroom and are ready to go i want you to find a nice open road where you can do 60mph
  11. now that you are here i want you to act like ther is a road train in front of you doing 50mph
  12. now i want you to overtake this road train applying full power by pressing fully dont on the gas
  13. once over tiaken slow back down
  14. i want you to do steps 11 to 13 twice at least
  15. now go back home and let me know how it went
now something to remember for alwase
  1. as stated i dont think you should race or rev the motor all the time to high once a month give it a good run this will loosen and clean all the rubbish from the motor and everythink will run freeley like it should
  2. dont drink and drive
  3. dont speed
  4. saty safe on the roads you life is to valued
  5. and let me know all progress as i want to know if it helped as i pout in a lot of time and effort to helping people on this site
stay safe and happy new year
