I don't know much about cars, or the symptoms of anything faulty, so I'm hoping someone with more expertise can take all the info and give me a step in the right direction before I take it to a mechanic:
My issue started about a month ago. Basically, when I start the car, it starts fine, but when I put it in reverse it putters a little as I back out of my driveway. When I put it in drive and press on the accelerator, it starts to go but then stops moving. The car doesn't die, but just doesn't accelerate even tho my foot is pressing on the accelerator. There is no sound like revving as this happens. It happens for a couple seconds and suddenly starts going again and drives fine the rest of the ride, no hesitation of any kind after stopping at a light or anything. The problem doesn't happen every time I start the car, but I'd say a good 95% of the time. After the initial 10-15 seconds upon start up, I have no issues with hesitation or anything. When it first happened, I put some Seafoam in the gas tank when it was close to empty, changed the fuel filter, and then put some Lucas fuel system cleaner in it before my next fill up. Up until two days ago, the check engine light wasn't even on. It came on, and as soon as it did I took it to Advanced and got a P1635 code reading. Did a little research and saw that it has to do with about 4 or 5 things, which I'm sure the pros are familiar with. The light has since gone off, so now I'm not even seeing the check engine light. With the description of how my car is riding along with the error code, can anybody possibly narrow down what it is? I'd really appreciate any kind of answer. Thank you.
have the same problem?
