Possible base idle adjustment or bad IAC valve. Could also be the A/C circuit. Check to see if the cars idle goes up when you are still and at idle. The idle should come up some, maybe about 150 rpm's or so. If that's OK, that I would have your base idle checked along with the IAC valve circuit and the valve itself. Let me know wht you find.

I have a 1996 suzuki swift,why does engine stall out when I put into gear,like torque converter is locking up.I changed converter?

low engine power.. which engine, there are 7 .
ever put in a new timing belt , 60,000 mles service it is.
if not it slips and power goes byebye.

if you use your right foot to stop the stall does it, and if you do that
do you get full power>?
if yes, yes, then the ISC is stuck closed or EGR stuck open.

the ECU raises the ISC valve to keep a/t from stalling,
it open the valve at the moment of the shift to any gear.
P/n to any gears. if it cant open it will stall.
that is how the idle controls work.

1989 Toyota Camry automatic transmission starting off on high gear.Stalls on drive like pulling heavy loads.

It is quite likely to be a failed shift solenoid, causing inability to find low gears. There should be a trouble code stored, causing the O/D lamp to blink.

2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo transmission shifting problems

  • A/T or M/T (auto or stick, gee)
  • if A/T is this the 42RE box>? are you in DRIVE? or 1 or 2 gear.
  • does rpm rise above 3000 rpm > at your attempt? if not ,its a bad engine (weak)
  • is the shift linkage even shifting correctly (movement top and bottom)
  • check levels yet. (and for pink ./red AFT not black-metal flake
  • change the filter yet? or skip service. at 50k miles. ?????
  • check all fuses yet>?
  • using a basic OBD2 scan tool are there any tranny DTC errors?>
  • does the FSM stall test pass? in 1st.? and reverse?
  • if stall fails, slips , then tranny bad. if not its really stuck in 1st gear.
The TCM commads the gear change, there is no valve body brain.
the TCM shifts to second with good inputs to the TCM
if the TCM sees bad inputs it will tell you, SCAN IT.

Rough idle after engine is warm

Dirty air filter, dirty throttle body...try 2 bottles of gas line fuel injector cleaner...has your car been parked for awhile? Heet gas additive will work on any low gas tank sludge that you may have. Hope this helps.

Engine revving up when shifting gears and jerking hard

Really !!!

You have no idea after all those issues that the
transmission is completely worn out?

If it had any chance of repair, you rode it to it's
grave knowing you could hear & feel things

I get a hard shift out of first to second gear and it also stalls when going into overdrive... when the tranny downshifts from O.D. it slams into the lower gear

It sounds like you have a modulator problem. With the stalling it could be a vacuum leak, the vacuum line to the modulator may have come loose. This will cause the hard shifting and cause your engine to stall at low RPMs, such as in overdrive. Try to listen for a hissing sound under the hood or under the vehicle by the transmission. Be sure if you crawl under the car with it running that its in park and you have the emergency brake set and the wheels chocked, this can be VERY DANGEROUS. If your not a mechanic this should be a low to moderate repair cost.

Engine stalling on a 2002 chevy tahoe z71

Still sounds like a fuel problem. Try a full tank of supreme gas, plus put a can of SEAFOAM into the tank to help clean you injectors. See if this will help clear up your problem. Did you change the plugwires????
