... Chevrolet Cars & Trucks

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with a non V-Tec 4 cylinder that stalls when I do a fast deceleration and come to a stop. I can cruise along, hit the brakes hard to come to a stop, as it comes to a complete stop, it sputters and shuts off. Then it is hard to start back up right away. The idle speed is where it's supposed to be. It almost feels like it maybe floods over somehow. I'm not sure. The fuel pump is new, new plugs and good fire on all of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Check the power brake booster for holding a vacuum. It may have a small leak when the brakes are not applied and a larger leak when they are applied. Check the EGR valve for sticking open or for a leaky vacuum diaphragm. ... 1996 Honda Accord

1997 Ford Ranger 4.0L 4x4 with an AOD transmission. It has a hard shift from a dead stop, 1st to 2nd, fine from 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th. Occaisionally another hard shift into overdrive. Also seems to have a hard shift a couple of seconds after I come to a dead stop.

Hard shifting after highway driving 1998 tahoe. After driving on the highway (mostly in hot weather) after coming to complete stop the car shifts hard at about 10 mph. Ramdonly does this from time to time. Feel like the rear end is coming apart. After you get your speed back up its fine. Could this be caused by the speed sensor? No trouble codes or ck engine lights are showing up.

I have an 2006 Nissan Maxima SE. I am having issues when it shifts it shift slightly hard. this doesnt occur everytime. However when it does the RPMs climb up to 6RPM and then jump into gear. if i let my foot off the gas then it stops . Sometimes when i come to a stop it doesnt shift at all and is stuck in 5th gear. I have to turn the car off and restart it. My service engine light came on today when it shifted weird. Do you kno what this may be?


This happens because the valves that control the shifting aren't working as they should. A new oil will help but not very much - the faulty behaviour you describe is too advanced to be fixed just by replacing the oil - the solenoids commanding the va ... 2006 Nissan Altima
