Sputtering engine while in passing gear


At 150000 miles the plugs start to fail under hard acceleration the higher compression blows out the spark before it ignites the fuel. Random cylinder misfire causes the check engine light to come on. change the plugs!

Car wont go 30 mph


if when you get to 30 miles per hour the rpms are excessively high then the 3rd gear on you're transmission is out. you can try changing the transmission filter and fluid but most likely will not help and you will have to replace the transmission or have it rebuilt anyways. I'm assuming its an automatic transmit ion and therefore if high rpms at 30 miles per hour its sadly the transmission

I have a 2000 ford mustang, v6. It turns on just fine, however it accelerates at a very slow pace. It also does not pass more than 70 miles per hour. There is also a scraping noise from 2nd to 3rd gear...


Change the air filter. For even better performance, give it a complete tune-up, including new plugs and wires, pcv valve, air filter, and change the oil. Good luck!

I am getting approximately 10 MPG in my 1994 GMC Sonoma. It is a V6, 4.3l. I took it to a car shop and he said it looks like it has had a recent tune-up - I bought it about a month ago. He suggested a BG...


To tell you the truth, you aren't far off from normal, depending on what kind of driving you are doing. I have owned 3 of these and they all average 12MPG around town. Driving habits have a lot of effect too.

Vehicle Tips
· Keep your tires properly inflated, and check them frequently.1
· Keep your front suspension and steering in proper alignment.
· Use the thinnest viscosity oil that your car's manufacturer recommends (5W-30 for most newer cars).
· Keep your engine in proper mechanical condition.
· Keep your engine in tune and make sure the air and fuel filters are clean.
· Make sure your brakes are not dragging.
· Repair body damage. That crunched front fender adds aerodynamic drag - just ask any race car driver.
· Don't use premium fuel if your car does not require it (check your owner's manual); using it is an unnecessary expense.
· Don't waste your money on those late night "as seen on TV" products that are supposed to increase your mileage.
Driving Tips
· Avoid excessive warm-up time. Modern engines do not require it.
· Don't idle your engine for long periods. Turn off your engine when you leave the car or have to wait a long time.
· Avoid jack-rabbit starts.
· Keep your speed at 55 miles per hour or less whenever possible.
· For newer vehicles with aerodynamic designs, close the windows and turn on the A/C when driving on the freeway.
· For older cars with inefficient A/C compressors, use the ventilation system and close the windows, temperature permitting.
· Anticipate merging traffic and stoplights - decelerate and accelerate smoothly.
· Plan your trips wisely. If you need to go several places, plan a route that allows you to run most or all of your errands in one outing.
· Empty the trunk! Extra clothes, overdue library books, tools and the bag of aluminum cans that you have been meaning to take to the recycler all weigh down your car unnecessarily
· Car pool whenever possible or practical.
· Listen to radio reports for alternate routes around congested areas.
· Drive in the highest gear possible (without lugging the engine).
· Try to keep your speed constant. Use cruise control when on long stretches of road.
Notes:
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, nearly four million gallons of gasoline could be saved nationwide each day for every one pound per square inch (psi) of tire under-inflation, compared to the mileage if ALL vehicle tires were kept inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that for 145 million passenger vehicles idling five minutes per day, approximately four million gallons of gasoline are consumed without going anywhere.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a vehicle loses about one percent in fuel economy for every one mile per hour above 55 m.p.h. that it is driven. A passenger car that averages 30 miles per gallon at 55 m.p.h. could typically get 28.5 m.p.g. at 60 m.p.h., 27 m.p.g. at 65 m.p.h. and 25.5 m.p.g. at 70 m.p.h. Remember, however, that for different speeds, the changes in fuel economy will vary by vehicle model.
Each 100 pounds of needless weight will cost up to one-half mile per gallon, on the average.

My 97 accord would only go 30 miles per hour but the rpm s were going to the red line. the engine was reving on it's own. what could be wrong


Jennifer,
The problem is in your transmission [automatic transmission] or clutch [standard transmission] Check the level of the fluid in an automatic transmission. Check for proper free play in the clutch of a manual transmission.

Trans starts out fine, will upshift to 2nd while in OD position but will begin to slip at about 30-35 mph. From that point it will upshift if gear shift is placed in 2 position. Doesn't seem to go past...


well,whoever did the transmission needs to look at it again.It sounds like a solenoid problem internally in the transmission.or a plug,wiring,or vacuum leak

Honda passport 1994 4wh drive cant pass smog test. i change the catalytic converter, change the egr valve, 02 head sensor and major tune up, spark plugs, wires are all change still cant pass smog. i passed...


Here are a few things to look at:
Have you replaced the air filter? Have a compression test done on the engine, could possibly be a leaking vale. If any vacuum hoses have been removed from the engine they will have to be re-installed. Solid Lifters out of adjustment can cause incomplete combustion. Make sure engine is reaching proper operating temperature (eg. thermostat). Do not use low grade (octane) fuel for test.
Clean oil, tire pressure, brake drag?, every little thing counts.

Blazer transmission not shifting properly beetween 1 and 2


Your going to have to get the ECM scanned, Auto Zone scan's for free and most garage now will scan for $10.00 to $15.00 since they all have the scanners now and need the business.
You could have a Vehicle Velocity Sensor (V V S)  going bad or the wire harness it self. The V.V.S tells the ECM how fast the drive shaft is rotating and calculate's what gear it should be in relative with the engine speed and throttle position, and transmission fluid pressure.
Regardless you need the Blazer scanned to pin point why your transmission is shifting the way it is. Could be as simple as time for transmission oil and filter change for $125.00 or a loose wire harness.
Check your transmission fluid and try not to run the blazer to hard, to replace the transmission start at $1,900.00 for a rebuilt.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted
