PROBLEM: LACKING POWER, AND EXPERIENCING SLUGGISH ACCELERATION


Guessing here, might help to know the make/model/year/engine.
Sounds like you're running in "limp mode" because one of your sensors is either bad or simply not hooked up. Perhaps TPS (throttle position sensor) or MAF (Mass AirFlow)

Loss of engine power/transmission 2001 chevy tahoe over 65 mph


Sound's as though a previous owner installed a speed governor so that the engine would not exceed the nationwide 55-65 mph speed limit average. This most likely was a company owned vehicle or owned by someone concerned about speeding ticket's or excessive speed by a teenage driver. It can be uninstalled by an experienced mechanic. Unless this poses a problem while driving on an interstate, you may wish to leave it as is.

CAR GOES INTO DRIVE BUT DOES NOT SHIFT OUT. WILL NOT EXCEED 35 MPH


Unscrew the wing nut on your air breather and lift it off. On the driver side of the car, on the side of the throttle body there is a bar/linkage that comes up from the side of the transmission that is supposed to be connected to the throttle body by a small plastic bushing/grommet fastener. As they age, they break off and will cause this delayed shifting. If you drive it hard enough it will eventually shift (35-40 mph) out of first gear. Probably wont shift out of second until closer to 65-70 mph. Same thing happened to me. I thought geeze this thing is not going to shift but it will. Should be a simple fix.

Transmission shifts early (Is this normal?)


the reason it might be shifting so early is because of the gear ratio in the rear end of the truck. it is common in the 2 wheel drive basic model pickup because they were designed to work not travel.

1990 f150 transmission up shift to early


Sounds like the passing gear cable is out of adjustment. Get a shop manual and see what the specs are on how to adjust it properly. It is a pretty simple fix.

1995 Grand Cherokee no power especially up hills


You may want to check engine performance. If you have any problem with either the fuel (including filter) or ignition system (including timing chain) the transmission will react to the subsequent lack of power, in order to maximize remaining power... This includes early downshifts.
good luck
