    it is nothing to do with using a to higher gear around a corner basicly the engine appears to cut out momentearily .it is under light power application around 1800 rpm.any proper idears.tks

    you guys havent come up with any thing appart from driving tecknique.this is not the fault.1800 rpm is not a power setting that should cause the engine to cut out.The fault occurs any time you accellerate through 1800 aproxx rpm.Ive been driving 25 years cars and trucks i think i can eliminate driving technique.Thanks.

Throttle Position Sensor has a dead spot? Loosen the screws til you can rotate the body and listen to rpms. idle rpm should be 8/900. Had some hesitation around 1500/2000 rpm and found a dead spot in TPS. Quick and cheap change.

Other possiblities sounds like a vacuum leak; possibly in the intake tube.

Tes it and tell us news.

Since everything works normally except when shifting to high speed,
it either has a bad clutch/pressure plate/flywheel combo or the engine could not provide the power needed when load is applied such as when driving off in higher gear.
The latter can be discounted if the engine does not feel underpowered in any way or the idle is normal. If not then check for vacuum/air leaks and if none is found replace the idle air valve.Also get the TPS sensor checked.
(Throttle position sensor).Also check if the timing belt is got overstretched and worn out.it may be getting stretched at high rpm and slipping.This may be causing hesitation. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

You should be taking corners in 2nd
any higher gear you will just feel car slugging this is due to how you drive not the car's engine
Don't take corners in high gears its a simple known fact..
Try keep in lower gears for corners and only change up when you feel appropriate.

    If you are in incorrect gear engine will want to cut out
    Also driving in too high gears around corners will result in major clutch plates being worn


    This is all down to driving style, That is why in the UK the driving test now includes driving round corners in 2nd if you are in -incorrect gear you fail because too many people are using too high gears, they should introduce this in Canada and United States.

    But as you have already been driving like this, The clutch plates may be starting to ware, iF its running fine in lower gears at correct speeds then its common sense that low speeds + high gears = Car wants to cut out.

    OK if its not driving problem then it could be due to bad injectors run an fuel system cleaner through it will be cheap to do and will eliminate the problem of any fuel blockage in fuel lines.

What is causing a couple of second judder when accelerating away after changing from 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th gear ?


it may be from failing engine mounts allowing the engine to misalign the drive shaft under acceleration and allowing problems in the cv joints or "U" joint

Suzuki 1,3 auto swift gear box has problem changing from 2 to 1 driveengages with a clunk. Told it is software that needs reprogramming after a clutch change. is this correct?


find shop that can diagnose a bad t ranny, Automatics are complex ,
also the PCM , you cans scan it for t ranny DTCs fail codes, i see you are scan too free, right>? why not look, i bet you get P07xx errors.
The TCM (in the PCM brain) has what is called failsafe, if the TCM
detects gross slippage or other errors its drops to failsafe. (DTCs too)
and limits the gears available , all of this is in the FSM and the tests are complex. fixing a A/T with no FSM book is "near impossible"
FSM = a real Factory service manul
or at least go to alldata.com or mistchells, and read those sections. online.

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

I HAVE A SLIGHT PURRING SOUND FROM THE ENGINE... WHEN I PUT THE CLUTCH IN IT STOPS... ALSO WHEN IM IN 1ST, 2ND AND 3RD GEAR WHEN IM ACCELERATING THERE ISNT A GOOD SOUND FROM IT!! BUT ITS FINE IN 4TH AND...


This would be most likely the first noise of a wearing input shaft bearing. It will only get louder, and eventual failure of the bearing will probably mean catastrophic gearbox failure. It stops when you put your foot on the clutch because the gearbox stops spinning then, and it is quiet in 4th and 5th because there is no side loading (as there is in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd) on the failing bearing. It wouldn't matter what sort of car it was, the gearbox should be overhauled as soon as possible.
