I have checked for the obvious - vacuume leaks, disconnected sensor wiring etc and could find nothing wrong. I thought possibly the transmission might be slipping but this does not happen at lower speeds (under 55 for example). There is no slipping in any of the gears coming out of park or reverse so I don't think that the transmission would be the problem. As I stated, this issue Just Started and without warning !
Over the weekend, I changed plugs and plug wires, because I have had an idle surge and an engine miss (sputter) as well and thought the problem was ignition wiring related. I even pulled the MAF sensor and cleaned that thinking the sensor was gummed up or something. Nothing. I did have an oil leak and changed the timing belt over the weekend and resolved the oil leak part of the problem because the valve cover gasket was bad. Afterwards, I took the car out for a test drive and the problem has not disappeared so I could use some help on this one. Especially the surge that is occuring at highway speed. I've had the car with the cruise control enabled and disabled - it does it either way. Any help soon would be appreciated !
have the same problem?
