Question about 2004 Scion Tc

2 Answers

My Scion tc has 140,000 miles on it and today while driving it just started revving to 3 or 4 rpm before actually movement. So I was just wondering if it was or could be the spark plugs?

Sounds like you need to replace your throttle control sensor. And you can check for any vacume leaks to see if any cracked or loose lines , Best of luck to you.

No it is not your plugs, your trans is slipping (not good)-make sure you have trans fluid in it (if it is an automatic) and if it is a stick you are going to need a clutch real soon, drive it gently so you don't have to have it towed (don't let it 'slip' be gentle with the gas petal)-if it is an automatic, and it does not need fluid, same advise,drive it gently, gradually accelerating until you can get it to a trans repair facility, because you won't be able to drive it very long like that.

under the bonnet on the radiator is an automatic fan, now if the radiator is low or you need to replace the coolant in it or top it up but the car may need a service and let them know the problem.

Hello;
This may be coincidental but check your wires to the sensors near the battery. Also check all vacuum lines. You may have knocked one off as you replaced the battery.
Thanks;

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
