Took the car out this morning and when we come to a full stop I have to hit the gas pedal 3-5 times before it starts moving and when it does it jumps hard. What's wrong exactly? And how can I fix it myself?
My car has 285000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. It is possible that the transmission is not your problem. If the vehicle is hard to accelerate, it could be cause by a fuel system, ignition system or drive train component failure. Due to the fact there are so many possibilities, the best advice we can offer is to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection to pinpoint the source of your issue.
