asked by on

My car is having problems getting power to go it goes into gears but sounds like it's bearly going?

My car has 189000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Hi there. When a car has acceleration issues as you’ve described, more often than not, it’s due to transmission problems. This can range from inner seals or gaskets being damaged to a torque converter that is worn out. It can also be due to fuel or ignition system components that are damaged or simply need to be cleaned. I would recommend having a professional mechanic come to your location to complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection.
