somethin wrong with my car (auto GT)
ok guys.. something weird with my car.

NORMALLY when i gun it with the car.. it would kick in like a sec later and start picking up..


and NOW, when i press the pedal all the way down it sounds like its ready to take off, but then it takes about 3 seconds sometimes 4 to finally register that im trying to make it go.. its really weird.. and my CEL light is on.. i tried resetting battery and all.. and it still does it and the CEL light just comes back on. you think maybe i have to clean the MAF sensor on my Intake? or maybe hoses on my Intake is not on tight enough?.. i have no clue guys.. maybe someone has same problem as me..

help me resolve this issue!! cry

clean the MAF sensor is the first thing.

Also clean your throttle plate, it might be tacky from carbon.

Whens the last time you changed your tranny fluid?

Does it happen with O/D on or off??? confused
I'm asking, because the first thing I do to get my car faster is turn off O/D... I only use it after I reach 60 mph., and turn it off when I want to stop quickly, or pass some dumb at the freeway... happywink anyway, you must wait 1 second to get response.

I also think, that it would be a good idea to get a Trans.fluid flush, and check sparkplugs.

the best thing to do is take it to the dealer and get a overlook on the problem , then concider if you can get it done cheaper somewhere else, if you don't have warranty...
