Sounds like a slipping clutch or transmission depending if its a manual or an automatic geared car.
If its a manual with a slipping clutch it will slip worse when in a higher gear going up hill. It will sound like the car is reving higher the the car is moving. If it is the case the clutch assembly will require replacement which involves removal of the gearbox. If its an auto and does the same thing check the fluid level at the dipstick.Top up if low and rectify leaks, If its not low and the fluid smells burned or is brown you should take it to an automatic transmission specialist to have it checked out.

How will I adjust the rev of carburetor when aircon is on?


you don't adjust the idle for any accessories
The idle is set for smooth running of the engine( normally 750-900 rpms with a drop of 200-300 rpms with an ac running so set the idle at the upper rpms and it will still be smooth when the ac is on without affecting gear engagement
your problem I take it is that when the ac cuts in the idle rpms drops and makes the engine run rough
This is normal as the ac compressor takes up to 5 hp to drive it
what you need is an electric controlled vacuum pot connected to the accelerator lever so that when you switch on the ac the power to the ac clutch energizes the pot and vacuum pulls the accelerator lever to maintain the set idle rpms
such an item is found on most early carby operated engines

I have a 2002 Celica GT 5-Speed and I shift at about 4k RPMs when getting on the highway and I still feel I'm accelerating to slow. Am i doing something wrong?


Not driving a corvette? Just kidding. More details are important. How slow is your acceleration? Is it 0-60 in 8 seconds, or 20 seconds? What is redline on your car? If redline is 5K then 4000 is a good responsible shift point. If redline is 8K then shifting at 4000 is probably robbing your engine of it's torque and horsepower band. I believe the GTS model has an 8K RPM redline, the GT may be lower, but in that case, shifting at 4K is too soon for strong acceleration. Your Tachometer should have redline clearly marked. For responsible use, stay below that, maybe 10-20%. For economy stay further still, but for power you need to let the engine use it's RPMS, especially smaller and fewer cylinder engines usually don't make their power until they are half way through the RPM range and above.

run the fault codes
the rpms change indicates a ratio change up then back down indicating a TR or VSS problem

No power to accelerate after replacing battery


if the battery was dead for at least a hour, the computers are resetting its self, try to drive it slow about to 30mph for a couple days computers will change the way transmission shifts and how the rpms act.

Starts missing at even speeds. Not usually during


Sounds like you have a bad plug wire, I would start by replacing plugs and wires (needs to be done every 60k) and go from there.

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.
