Does anyone know what is going on? After this oil change, my car started to act funny. Already replaced the crankshaft positioning sensor that was recalled on the 2. I stopped and then got back in it and started back down the road. If this sensor were to malfunction, the gas pedal would no longer be able to control the speed of the engine because the pedal controls the throttle valve. I have a 97 Ford explorer sport. Now all of the sudden it wont go into drive but will reverse and neutral. Hi I found this website upon friend suggestion, I would like to voice the problem with my car.
But if you are experiencing any of acceleration issues, you should not ignore it. Reverse and first gear and drive does not work but neutral and park do. If the lender will not pick the collateral up, ask where you can deliver it, and do so. This goes for all heard. It is full of fluid to the fill line and no leaks. It is possible a cat could be clogged in certain situations and not others, heat related for example.
I had slow acceleration after that and still do. It's like I'm a sitting duck, waiting to get T-boned when the light turns. I never had any problems shifting gears or parking before, in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. Either your car is running out of fuel or it does not have enough power. I have a feeling this isn't going to be resolved anytime soon but I'll keep my fingers crossed. Every once in a while over the past few months, my car has had trouble switching into drive. I have no clue what is going on can anyone please help me? This transmission is 25 years old, with great parts.
They thought it was the torque converter but when they pulled the transmission pan down there were metal flakes in it. I have also had to change the plugs and had the nozzles serviced. I then am able to switch to Drive and after that it will switch gears by itself as long as I stay above 1st gear speed. It would make louder noise when placed in park. The cost was too much so I decided on not doing the work and since I live close by to shop I chose to drive it home in 1st gear. Because I noticed the headlights affected the acceleration, I turned the lights on a couple of times before stopping for gas and everytime, the problem returned and then went away when the lights were turned off.
I guess I'll take it to the dealer just so they will have a record of the problem, but sounds like nothing will be done since I can't now replicate the problem. After changing the alternator alternator did die and drained my battery, the shop recharged the battery now it seems be stuck in 3rd gear and doe not wont to shift it is a automatic. If the idle is set to high, the car might move pretty quick. It is like it is stuck in neutral. I took it to shop where I had it checked and they quoted me for a new transmission because they said mine needed to be rebuilt.
You are thinking in the right areas for this issue. The car has a hard time shifting into first gear when cold after resting for about a day it feels like when the clutch is not released in a manual transmission. When an engine overheats you run the risk of causing serious damage. It only works in 1st and 2nd gear. My 2009 Rogue has intermittently been doing this also. It first started out not wanting to stay in park. The owner has stated that the car has a transmission issue.
Allow the engine to idle for a moment. Lucas fuel treatment is the best to use. Smoke comes out of the exhaust every once in a while. The wheels did spin as I was on a slop but did manage to get on the road. Just so you know, you aren't being at all unreasonable by insisting that they continue to work on troubleshooting this problem until they find a proper resolution. So you don't have a big problem. However, it just revs like it is in neutral.
Today I was drove tomwork and the check engine came back. Went in reverse and forward. I find I drive more careful, knowing the faults of the vehicle; fewer high and low speeds and more the average like actually adhering to posted speed limits. I have changed the front and back sensors on the transmission, oil change, cleaning out the mass airflow sensor and adding transmission fluid. If you are describing that when you put it into gear and it wont move in drive you could have internal damage especially if you ran with low fluid levels. A slow acceleration problem is generally found in which have a lot of miles on them.
The transmission fluid is ok — put a little more in just in case, but its still playing up. If no leak is suspected, refill the transmission fluid and test it out. If I ease the pedal down very slowly, it will shift both times, and then it is fine. When I start moving it vibrates a lot then when in motion it moves normal. Is there any other problem that can cause the car not to move? As it is with the medical profession you may want to search out for a second opinion. Dirt makes the fuel heavy, making it unable to move freely from the tank to the engine.
