Engine Performance problem
2002 Oldsmobile Alero 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
This problem started about a week ago. When you step on the gas the rpms will go up but the car doesnt speed up. You really have to slam on the gas to get it over thirty at a reasonable time, but I still get honked at alot. Getting over 45 can take awhile and sometimes it wont even go over 50 and the rpms will be close to red, so I have to let off the gas and then step on it again till it will speed up without blowing the engine up. The weird thing is when the engine is cold it will accelerate fine. I mean really cold, like winter morning cold. I am hoping this is a problem I can fix myself, for I do not have the money to mess around with a shop. Please help.
have the same problem?
