I own a 03 jeep wrangler TJ 4.0. At high rpms or under load (going up hills it looses power) if driving in 5th gear at 60 mph and is down shifted to 3rd gear it slows down extreamly, the engine will not go past 3200 rpms. Not moving if rpms can only go to 4200, past that it boggs down, as if it were getting starved from fuel or air. I have recently installed a high flow exhaust system that removed the two catalytic converters that were just past the headers, and i have been told it could possibl

Hi, I have a 2001 nissan sentra 2.0 with 218,000 miles on it. my problem is it doesnt want to accelerate. I can make it go nice and slow with a little gas, but if I step on it the engine bogs down. Also after its a little warm, shifting from 1st to 2nd makes the rpms go up and down from 1.5 rpm to 2 until it jumps to 3 and shifts. Car idles fine but wont rev past 1.75 rpms. Btw this all started after I adjusted my alternator to stop it from shrieking on start up. I have changed tps, upstream o2

2001 toyota sienna, 6cyl 3l, must accelerate very slowly from stop or van seems to bog down badly, may take 2 miles to get to 55 mph, going up bridges it bogs down very badly, diagnostics indicated catalytic converter clogged. it has 3 converters, 3-way converter system. can the converters be removed and solve the problem? must they be changed because of sensors? how do i troubleshoot if really converter problem or sensor problem?

I have a 1999 ford f250 v-10 superduty and when i drive between 0 and 2000 rpms it has a stutter and a miss and has no power and takes about a minute to get up to 30 mph. Even when it is above 2000 rpms if you punch it to the floor it will and almost dies. You cannot even go up a 2% grade incline unless you are going about 30 mph,if you are at a stand still and try to go it will bog out and not let you move. We changed the mass airflow sensor,fuel filter,fuel pump and fuel regulator. HELP PLEASE


Replace the throttle position sensor. ... 2005 Ford F 250 Super Duty

2002 ford f250 superduty started shifting weird, seems like torque converter isn't working properly. There is hesitation when going into gears and when I'm driving and apply the brake or let off the gas the rpms don't go down like they should. It has 71000 miles on it and transmission has not been serviced, would getting it serviced solve the shiffting problems or is the torque converter bad?

My 92 suburban wont go over 2000 rpms most of the time while driving. It can rev up while in park fine. When I'm driving I lose power up hill extremely. I also can gas it and lose more power then I had before I gased it. Somebody told me my catalytic converter but I figured It wouldnt rev up in park if it was the catalytic converter. I've had the check engine light come on acouple of times before when I've went uphill but when I killed it and cranked it again the check engine light was gone. Som


The very first thing you should do is have your fuel pressure checked. sounds like fuel filter or fuel pump. ... Chevrolet Suburban 1500

1995 Cougar, 4.3L V-8. Has about 1/3 tank of gas, new battery, new fuel pump, new regulator, fuel filter, fuel injectors were checked and all ok, all plug wires were checked and are hot and spark...Car idles ok-atleast once it starts...it doesn't start when it's cold out, when giving gas...will not go past 1500-2000RPMS. 2 of the 3 catalytic converters were cleaned out, the other catalytic converter you can see through so it's ok...and it runs the same with the exhaust off-so not a plugged muff


Your car has a chevrolet 4.3 lt in it instead of a ford 4.6 thats the problem lol ... 1995 Mercury Cougar

Transmission is not operating correctly when cold. The RPM's are above normal operating levels prior to shifting. After the vehicle travels a couple of miles, all is fine. Normal operational RPM's are around 2000 at 70 MPH. Now it is 2500 RPM's. Had the catalytic converter changed out about 6 months as well as the solenoids for shifting. I put an OASIS computer on it but could not find anything out the ordinary. I'm thinking the converter may be going out again.


The PCM is allowing torque converter slippage until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature because cold transmission fluid is a drag on the engine and causes it to burn more fuel. ... 2002 Oldsmobile Alero

My 1991 300 zx non-turbo automatic transmission is stuck in third gear. one day i started the car and when putting it in drive it is really slow on take off. it has 0 acceleration. i dropped it in first and nothing changed. reverse works fine. when on the highway going 60 the rpms are at 4000 the over drive on or off makes no difference. i got it up to 120 mph at 7000 rpms and it would not shift. letting off the gas the rpms fall as if it were a manuel transmission. any suggestions?

I have a 1995 Chrysler Cirrus 2.5 L V6 automatic. I was driving and suddenly it just stopped shifting past what I think is 3rd gear. I can go from 0 to 35 with the RPMs at 3000 but after 35 it wont shift anymore. At one point the car wold no longer accelerate which was at about 50 MPH but as soon as I slowed down to about 40 it kicked into gear. This is the first time this has happened but prior to this there were a few occasions when it had a little trouble switching into 2nd I think it was.

We have a 1986 Dodge Lancer that runs fine when I first start it. As soon as it warms up, the motor bogs down. We have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, catalytic converter and put tranny fluid in it (although the transmission shifts fine). We were told that the modulator on the transmission may need to be replaced, but, as I stated, the tranny shifts just fine, not too rough and not too soft and the gears do not slip at all. It almost seems as though it is not getting enough air flow through

2004 altima 2.5 At times the engine will act as if it cannot accelerate. If you try a fast acceleration, the engine will bog. recently, while going about 20mph and trying to accelerate, bogs down. The car acted this way for 10 miles. I got out, waited 1hour, strted it up and ran fine, even if I tried a hard acceleration. Took it to a mechanic, it had two catalytic codes. He sais the converter is overheating and needs replacement. 120K miles

I recently started noticing that when I shift gears, the RPMs go really high (even when I am going very slowly). This problem is especially noticable when I go from a stand still to 15mph in first gear. The RPMs quickly "reve" over 30. As I accelerate, the RPMs reve even higher and then suddenly go back to normal as I gain speed. I notice this same problem as I shift from first gear to second and second gear to third. Any ideas why this is happening? Any ideas what might be the cause
