Dont think its an injection problem..Most likely a transmission failure or something to do with the crankshaft.
Best get a mechanic to inspect this and diagnose the exact problem.

    The transmission has small clutches that are shifting back and forth at hot temperatures ,inside the clutch is a spring that has slipped through the next gear.

    vacuum /pressure  can cause improper down shifting also

On My 2002 Hyundai Elantra after 5-10 min of driving fast and hard accelaration will downshift the transmission.What can cause that,?Check engine light is not on...


Most modern automatic transmissions have a chip in them that will prevent the car from downshifting, say, into first gear when you're moving at 60 mph. Still, I wouldn't try it. When climbing a hill, only downshift if the AT can't decide which gear to be in and switches back and forth--choose the lower one. When descending use brakes to decelerate. However, once you've braked, do use a low gear to coast in, to prevent you from freely accelerating down the hill.

Car is chugging and acting like it is running out of gas. Check engine light is on.


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
Do not drive this until it is looked at.

96 cuttlass ciera sl won't up or downshift when in drive


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Service engine light keeps coming on. Shows pressure sensor is bad ?


You have to have, all vehicle problems involving any
OBD2 light on the dash,checked out in a couple of
days. Don't keep driving it,you have a possible
system malfunction
Need the code to give you ideas
Just get it checked out
If it is a transmission problem, I wouldn't even drive it.
I have owned a trans repair business and I own a 2004

The sensor was replaced and the computer was reset with the obd2 code reader, but the engine light came back on and I got the same codes,also car kick the same way, What can I do to fix the problem.

2000 durango 4.7 v8 tranny slip or something. Plzz help!!!


First thing you want to do, is get all that additive stuff out of there & get new filter & proper fluid in there. Mopar ATF 4. then disconnect battery for minute or 2 & start fresh as far as storing trouble codes goes. Chrysler transmissions don't react well to improper fluids or additives. If it starts to act up again, or check engine light comes on, have it scanned for codes at Autozone, or Pep boys & see what codes if any, come up. Don't prolong any transmission problem, as it will only cost you more in the end, if you don't take care of it right away.
