Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Engine starts and idles fine, but will not rev up (2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 diesel auto)


If it was a fuel shortage the engine would rev but to limited speed. This is a lack of air to throttle body. Check for clogged air filter and all the piping and the throttle body.

Engine over revs throtle sticking T reg lanos


first off.... does the engine over rev on its own? or only after you press the gas pedal?
does your vehicle have a throttle body that is electronic or cable actuated?..if electronic and revs on own could be one of two issues 1) throttle body itself 2)throttle pedal switch on gas pedal)
if cable and revs after pushing gas pedal ..either there is too much carbon built up on the throttle plate or the throttle cable has begun to fail.. remove the intake tube from the air cleaner to the throttle body and inspect

Mitsubishi Triton V6 lacks power on acceleration


full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....

Sometimes when i press the gas pedal on my 99 accord all the way down it acts like its needs gas. What could it be?


Hi there,

For an engine to work properly, the fuel air mix must be within certain parameters. Too much fuel uses up the available air before the all the fuel is burned and causes the engine to 'stumble' (a momentary lack of power until the fuel/air ratio has been restored). Flooring the pedal can certainly cause these symptoms.

When this happens, it's lack of air, not gas that causes it. Check your air filter as a possible cause, it may need to be replaced.

Lack of power


The computer will not allow the car to full rev in park to protect the engine. Likewise there is a rev limiter when in drive which will shut down injectors at high engine speeds usually around 5000 RPM or so.
