the only thing that we have done is change the fuel filters. we are not sure where to go from there. people keep saying icp sensor or fuel fitler. we ran an obd scanner and it showed nothing.

When you try to rev up the engine does it rev up at all or bog down when stepping on the gas pedal or does it act like there is no pedal response at all like your not even pressing on the pedal?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it will rev in park, but in drive there is nothing like not pressing pedal at all
Transmission Mechanic: Pete, Automotive Mechanic replied 4 months ago

Does the gear indicator show the correct gear when placed in drive or reverse?

Does it rev up properly in park and neutral like the engine has full power but not at all when in gear?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
slow rev in park and neutral but no power in gear
Transmission Mechanic: Pete, Automotive Mechanic replied 4 months ago

This is a difficult question for me to answer myself here.

Unfortunately, this is all of the info I have for this here.I will open your question up for others here for others to see if they can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease. No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete

Any codes stored?

Does it misfire in gear or smoke when applying throttle?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No codes, no misfire, no smoke.. park and neutral I have acceleration ... drive and reverse is like the peddle is disconnected... however vehicle will move during idle in drive and reverse
Transmission Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

So in drive or reverse at full throttle, there is not even a change at all in the rpm?
