Question about 1992 Nissan 240SX Fastback
My car starting acting up yesterday...it seems like it is idling a little higher than normal, but it just doesnt want to got into the next gear (automatic)...it revs up really high, like I am flooring the gas pedal...please help...Kathie
It sounds like you probably have a cracked or disconnected vacuum line going from the engine (intake manifold area) to the transmission modulator valve. This is the only vacuum line that goes to the transmission, so if you can locate it under the vehicle at the tranny, you can trace it back to where it connects to the engine, and also check to make sure it is not leaking or disconnected. If it is bad, you will need to replace it.
If that is not the problem, then the modulator valve itself has probably gone bad and will need to be replaced, but that is an unusual failure.
Kathy, sorry for your troubles, hope this helps you get it straightened out, but if you still have questions or comments, do not hesitate to let us know! And please remember to rate my advice - your rating is my ONLY compensation for providing this assistance!
