Question about Chevrolet Chevy

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Chevy Malibu. I noticed my RPM will only go a little higher than 2,000. What could be the problem. When I'm driving around and ready to drive away (once the light turns green) the car starts to **** for a while then it's fine. (RPM goes a little over 2000 then back down)

Whats the meaning of (O/D off ) kia spectra 2002 ?


the "O/D OFF" indicator light let's you know that your car is not in over drive. if you are just driving around town at relatively low speeds you probably wont notice a difference whether the button is on or off.but the next time you are driving on the freeway(55+mph) and want a little extra speed(overtaking another vehicle),click that button to the off position and you should hear the car shift into a lower gear which will instantly give your car more torque at a higher rpm to help you complete your pass ie- your cars"passing gear"

My 02 3.1L V6 chevrolet malibu one day started to idle at a higher rpm than it normally did. It happened at around 72XXX and now is just acting funny. i kinda have a clue what it could be but does anyone...


Most likely it is a vacuum leak some where if you have a propane torch do not light it but let the gas flow out slowly as you move it around the engine and if it revs up you have found you leak.

2002 rpm goes up to 2,000 rpm when i start it and around 40 mph it feels like it slips and goes up to 3,000 and stays goes up to 4500 rpm at 70 mph burning alot of gas and my engine just started rocking...


Sounds like the clutch, if a standard trans, needs to the be replaced. If it's an automatic, you need to take it in for diagnosis. Your trans. might be going bad, slipping, may just be low on fluid, if it is use some Lucas trans nonslpi and the proper tranny fluid to fill it to the proper level. Add the fluids and test drive bfore going to the shop, unless the tranny is fuul allready.

The RPM of Nissan Altima stays high when drive over 65 MPH.


No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

Cheak your fuse under the drivers side under the hood. Look in your manuel for fuel fuse. It looks like a little black box.

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
