Question about Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

2002 Intrepid. If I do quick acceleration, it will bog down when it hits 3000 RPMS. Under normal acceleration it works normally. Do you have any idea what may be causing this?

Sounds like catalytic converters beginning to plug up and or dirty fuel injectors. Either one will slowly get worse. Try seafoam inj cleaner 1st a couple of times n see what happens. Good luck

In my 2002 chevy cavalier when applying the gas pedal slightly in neutral or park i hear a click and the rpms go down slightly


first off run the fault codes to indicate any electronic problem. Next check under the accelerator pedal for a loose /broken clip that is allowing the pedal to disconnect from the sensor or cable .

My 2002 dodge durango hits 4000 RPMs and bounces between 3000 and 4000 RPMs when I am in park and have the throttle held down. I replaced the cam sensor and it is still doing it.


this is your rev limiter stopping you from over reving engine causing internal damage. this is normal on all new vehicles. Don't know what year they started this but it goes back at least 16 yrs

My '02 745 BMW will not accelerate under normal engine load. Which makes me have to accelerate gently and drive slowly because my car will cut back on rpms and hesitate real bad. While the car is in park...


You have a injection problem, whether it's a sensor or fuel feed . I wouln't drive the car untill you have issue addressed as you coul;d cause real expensive damage. The PCM will have to be scanned to find out the cause.

Sluggish acceleration. High RPM, High Oil Pressure


I hope I'm wrong but I think your torque converter is failing. Sorry, Gary

My honda bogs down, then pick back up, consistently


Hopefully the fuel filter. If you floor it and it has a delay or it won't reach high RPMs it's most likely the cause.

2002 Ford Ranger transmission slipping?


The longer you drive with that condition, the more damage you will cause. Park it until you can repair it.

Think of it as how long would you think it is okay to run your engine without oil? Zero.

With normal acceleration the 1st to second shift point should be around 2500-3000 rpm. Most of your shifts under moderate acceleration will take place at this same point or when there a light load on the transmission. Under hard acceleration the RPMs will climp higher due to increased power needs and the computer will shift when less power is needed or the RPMs climb to an unsafe speed say5000-6000rpms (depending on where yours redlines). Also going up a steep hill will raise the RPMs higher and goind down a hill will cause a faster shift at lower RPMs. These can always be altered by an individual owner by adjusting shift points, using performance parts and if you have problems (low tranny fluid/trans issues). Your trans RPMS are fine and will vary depening on how your foot accelerates. The shift pattern should be the same every time you drive slow/medium/fast/, look for changes in those patterns you will also catch a problem early.
