: revving up???

12th October 2002, 02:54 PM
Hey all,
the car made the roadtrip just fine, so I am happy about that (and better gas mileage than any of my other previous gashogs :D) But once back in to montana, my car has been acting funky. It's still accelerating fine, but if I am doing a little "spirited" driving (like getting on to a busy street), once I hit 3rd gear, the revs will crank up, but the engine will stop accelerating at a high rate until I back off of the gas and then slowly accelerate up in 3rd. No other gears have this problem? could this indicate a problem with the turbo? or maybe the clutch or the tranny? Any ideas? I'd appreciate them.
