Question Details

When I come to a stop sign or light and accelerate to move forward at a slow rate take off it feels like it’s missing for a couple of seconds and once I accelerate to a faster speed that feeling stops. What could be causing this? My engine lite does not go on and car has 182K miles. Otherwise it runs fine and gas mileage is great.

I would recommended you perform transmission reset by pressing and holding down on the gas pedal. 

 

1) ignition switch to position 1 2) push the gas pedal to the floor and hold for 5 seconds 3) turn the ignition switch to the off (0) position 4) release the gas pedal 5) wait at least two minutes before starting the car.

First you need to reset transmission adaptive shifting. 

1) ignition switch to position 1 or press start without pressing the brake pedal 2) push the gas pedal to the floor and hold for 5 seconds 3) turn the ignition switch to the off (0) position 4) release the gas pedal 5) wait at least two minutes before starting the car.

 

Also when was the last time the spark plugs were changed? 

 

Maybe it is time for new ones.
