Hi all, I am not much of a car guy and I am having an interesting situation with my old 2001 saturn l200 that has auto transmission and 140000 miles on it. It was working just fine till this morning when waiting at a stop light the light turns green and I start pressing the gas it just sat there and revved the engine but no power going to tires. I had to push the car to the side of the road. I shut off the car and waited maybe 5 minutes and then started back up, again started fine engine not sputtering and when I shifted into drive it started to go but was getting hardly any acceleration even though I was revving up to 3 to 4000 rpm. I know it isn't the catalytic converter cause the person who had the car before me apparently removed it. I also tried putting the car through all the gears but in any forward driving gear it just has no acceleration. It almost acts like it is stuck in a higher gear for no reason. It works in reverse fine and I have run the code scanner but it is coming up with no codes. The engine light is on now when it wasn't before today. Like I stated I am not very good with repairing cars but any help would be appreciated.
have the same problem?
