Car is slow to accelerate Inspection $79.99 - $89.99 Get a Quote

Hi there. In some cases, when you have acceleration problems after changing a transmission hose, the issue is related to either an obstruction in the transmission fluid lines or the torque converter not receiving or having enough transmission fluid (slipping). However, it’s quite possible that this is not related to the tranny at all, but something like a fuel system or ignition system issue. I would recommend contacting a professional mobile mechanic to complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection at your location. In most cases, when they can test drive the vehicle and replicate your symptoms, it’s much easier to pinpoint the root source and recommend the right repairs.
