2000 Astro Archer conversion. 4x4 kit. 73k miles as of 3/13/22
It runs good and will rev when in park. When i step on the gas it bogs down like a cheap weedeater.
I'm not too keen on the relationship between the engine and transmission and especially with an AT, how they work together. I know there's some kind of link between them other than the torque converter, but beyond that, I don't know.It runs good and will rev when in park. When i step on the gas it bogs down like a cheap weedeater.
We recently had a lift truck acting like that. Grant they are 2 different systems entirely, but it basically just needed a tune up. At least that's what the mechanic said and did. I had thought it maybe skipped it's timing the way it was acting. I would hunt down them codes and see what the fixes are for them, then determine if they are plausible accordingly.I pulled into traffic today and it would only go like 20 mph. I was holding to the floor. I kept backfiring and would build any rpms. Haven't tride manually shifting because i thought it was fixed.
Then I would think it is your MAF going, or maybe a wire leading to it, maybe the terminal connector, could be loose or getting corroded enough that the electrical connection gets interrupted, blowing the codes, and not self resetting. Maybe pull them off and spray some contact cleaner in them first.It does sound like it's out of time. It was backfiring and couldn't go over 20, 2 days ago. Today i started it up and there were no codes and ran fine. Then i put the old MAF back in ran fine and no codes. ..... i dont know
Mostly visually. Look for any corrosion that could be inhibiting current, broken or loosely connected wires that could be intermittently making electrical contact. If you have a continuity tester of some sort wouldn't hurt either.I have no idea how to do that.
