Q: My speed isn't affected by the rise of my RPM's

asked by on

When I accelerate, my engine revs too high. I recently had my mechanic fix my car when it wouldn't start. Is this connected or is this something different?

Your engine is revving high due to the transmission slipping. It should not have anything to do with the last work done. A vehicle with a slipping transmission should have the fluid level checked to see if it is low on fluid.
