Question 20MPH at 4000RPMS

Good Afternoon Everyone ,

So today I was driving and felt a little buckle, and just continued to drive home.

An hour ago I took the PT out again, and while getting it going down the street, the RPMS wouldn't shift back, and I was driving 20MPH at 4000 RPMS.

Prior, I always wanted to floor it, but I could feel that I shouldn't. I would slowly push down until I got to 20MPH,30,40 and so on. Today It didn't even give me that option.

A quick google search brought up another vehichle and suggested transmition.

I have already replaced the coils,sparks,MAP sensor, Cleaned AIT, Oil 10/20,Filters etc. No codes after the reset of teh MAPs Sensor.

What are the possibilities?


Jim

Check using a Diagnostic scanning tool for DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) at the Diagnostic connector.(CANbus)

Check your fluid level of the transmission.

hahah Check your "FONT" size responding here on the forum!

Yes but some members may have a hole in a small vacuum hose and do an emergency engine shut down thinking that the engine somehow went WOT without the TB actaully being fully or even less than 1/2 opened.

So I just instinctively grabbed the key and turned the engine off.

LMAO!!!!

Now I can't get the visual of a cat swimming in water. lol

I use the fonts because I was part of a Senior Citizen forum back in the day. lol

The Engine is hot and the fluid stick is at the HOT mark.

I'm watching videos now.

Rookie Question : I have 0 codes to use a Diagnotic Tool :


Thanks for all the quick responses.

Yes. It is a Automatic as well. It would only go past/below 4000 and drive "SOME WHAT NORMAL" if I let go of the gas a little bit, and press down on it again.
