Question about Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Sometimes when first stepping on the gas peddle, the car will hesitate. the rpm's will go up, and it will slam into gear. It does not do it all the time. once it gets going it is fine, and shifts smoothly.

You have transmission issues. Stop using it. Have it checked out at a trans shop.

Not all the time but when I start the car it starts very hard. When it starts hard like that and I wait a few second and put it into gear it slams into gear and sometimes won't move.


get it serviced?
hard starts are usually never getting a tuneup, (like spark plugs?)
slamming in to gear is normal if RPM is too high in park, is it.
wont move , in any gear, car wont move even in reverse.
and RPM of engine does what , sticks low, like 800 rpm
or screams at the advancement of right foot.
need lots of details. we cant drive car, but if could in 5min flat all that is clear,
eg:
transmission slips
engine weak
engine racing in park too high.
wont start and misfires when it does.
is fuel fresh, not year old.
ever get a new air filter and fuel filter. if filter is outside tank.

How do you check TPS sensor


That really depends on the car you are trying to check on. The older cars didn't even have a TPS. The best way to see an early indication of the TPS going bad, is how the vehicles is running or responding to your input. First, I suggest putting the vehicle on a diagnostic machine. Go to your nearest Autozone and they will do a check for free. There are 2 indicators that can tell you if you need to replace your TPS, or your IPV.It is easy to confuse the 2 because they kind of do the same thing when your car is running. TPS, or Throttle Positioning Sensor, effects what your throttle does when you depress the accelerator. For example: If your car is idling smoothly and you step on the gas peddle, and the RPM's drop quickly before they rev up. That is a good indication of a bad TPS. IPV, or Idle Positioning Valve, controls your RPM's as the vehicle is idling. If the IPV is bad, then you will experience rough, and fluxuating RPM's when you don't press on the gas peddle. Sometimes, if the IPV is bad, it will cause the vehicle to lunge forward while the vehicle is in gear.

Suzuki Escudo Jeep High Rpm


I am not familiar with Suzuki's but the first thing to check is that the throttle or throttle cable or throttle peddle are not sticking. With the engine off, ask a friend to press and release the throttle peddle while you look at the throttle to see if it moves. If it doesn't then you need to check each item to see which one is sticking.

Your car may need transmission fluid. Generally when there is a hard shift in gear, the transmission fluid is low. You may need to add a little transmission fluid.

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......

Car backfires hesitates when depressing gas pedal


Check the vacum lines going to the distributor and transmission. If they are leaking it could be your problem.
