Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My rpm drops as I accelerate speed over 300 rpm reading. The rpm drops-down badly & very fast. The engine sometimes stops. I need to re-start the engine once power lost. The car cannot climb on steep roads also because as I accelerate speed the rpm continue to drop badly. What's the problem? Is it with the servo? or with my automatic transmission? Please help.... Thanx

I have an 03 Jeep Grand Cherokee v6 2x2 with 170k... I'm having a couple of issues... 1. Occasionally will have trouble with cycling through gears when getting on Hwy causing decreased, sluggish...

I would consider changing the vehicle speed sensor. When they go bad, they can really throw out a lot of bad data to the computer, resulting in unexpected behavior like you're experiencing. They're only around $20-$25. I hope this helps! :)

Hard starting cold

Is cranking speed slow? Do a voltage drop test on battery cables.and a high output amp meter to test starter draw. normal ampere draw should be 250-350 amps cold and 300-375 amps hot as engine turns these readings should drop to 200-250 amps if not bad starter.

Amber warning light on (steering assist failure)

Check for error codes which can be the best indicator to the fault. You can start to suspect the fuel, the fuel filter , the fuel pump , a drop in fuel pressure at higher RPM. ALso check for problems in the electronic ignition section which can show faults at higher RPM.

No fix for that, other than to remove it & have it built

Idle drops form 900 to 300 rpm at stops & hesitation at speeds over 2000 rpm

Could be a throttle position sensor, or a myriad of other things related to the ignition, timing, spark plugs ... maybe the engine needs a complete tune up.

Our 2001 alero starts great and runs good when cold.. once warm say you at a stop sign and want to go you will see the rpm's drop then it takes hold and you do a mini burn out.. runs awsome at hiway speed...

sounds like the hi idle relay is going bad or could be the wires going toit are at points grounding out look for the obvious and even ck with a test light removing the plastic housing to ensure this maby remove the relay and clean it should be opposite the two acceleration cables or above it but ck the vacuum lines as well for possible dry rot a place to start 1 st

RPM drops to zero at idling after engine accelerates when warm

This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.

I have a 03 chevy 2500HD the amps and rpms go down when putting drive and reverse and pulling out from a stop. Battery went bad changed it now this problem started thanks a little puzzled

First, make certain that the battery you replaced is fully charged and that cable connectors are clean and wires are in good condition. Sometimes after sitting on a shelf , they aren't fully charged when you buy them. Your alternator can never charge the battery, it's designed to maintain the state of charge. You may be used to seeing readings that reflect your charging systems efforts to keep a failing battery charged. Those readings are not normal.
Your charging rate does change with engine rpm's up to a point...then the regulator takes over. Rpm's generally do drop a bit when in gear, and obviously change when accelerating from a stop. All your instruments are actually volt meters with different scales on them all rely upon actual line voltage to operate and though this is not as noticable as at a volt meter or amp meter, there subtle changes in all readings. Providing that you are getting proper voltage at the battery (generally 13.5-14.0 volts at the battery with engine running with accessories on) I would not worry about it. You can get your charging system tested at most larger parts stores free.
This isn't a fix, but rather an explanation as to what you may be seeing. If within normal range it's OK.

Throttle/Idle/running problem - wants to run too fast, or stall out

RPM's up and down check EGR valve and sensor. EGR valve and sensor control idle. That's why your getting the surging on rpm's and this could be giving out the other codes. If mass flow was bad car will not start and the same for the map sensor. O2 sensor measures gas and air for right mixer. TPS controls 0-60 speed as in throttle respons.
