My car is a nissan versa and when I accelerate it's

Customer Question

My car is a nissan versa and when I accelerate it's revving.No other noise just a high revving sound?
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: The car is 2011 and do you mean transmission fluid and such?
JA: Are you fixing your Versa yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I just had an oil change and my brother just checked transmission fluid.So no I'm not doing it myself.I guess I figured when you get an oil change they check all fluids.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No that's it.

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. how long after your oil change did this problem start?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I had it before the oil change about 2 weeks
Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

ok thanks. so basically, it starts fine, you put it in gear and you press on the gas and it revs high before catching in gear? or does it catch in gear normally and then revs as your are driving?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No this is fine and the car goes in gear fine but just revvs and actually you can hear it when you start the car too but increases with gas

do you have a check engine light on?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No engine light on,and if you don't mind could we just communicate this way.
Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

ok, and why do you ask if we can just communicate this way?

Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

ohhh, im sorry, the site automatically ask if you want a phone call. its not me........

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it does
Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

ok, this is what i need you to do. get some throttle body cleaner. clean the mass air flow sensor. remove the air tube to the throttle body and clean both sides of the throttle plate. remove the idle air control valve and clean out all the carbon deposits from it. put everything back together. see if that helps the problem

Ok will try that ,but can't get it done until tomorrow,will the car be ok to drive until then,just a short distance?
Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

I cant guarantee that, that would be asking a lot. I can only tell you that if it were my vehicle, I wouldnt drive it.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
OK will take your advice and will try what you say first thing tomorrow,and thank you for your patience,and help.
