Car is strugglening to move and revs high when movig from a complete stop.

Asked by Jun 12, 2016 at 07:46 AM about the 1991 Buick Regal Custom Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when pushing on the pedal my engine revs really high and move slow at first, but picks up after the initial acceleration, car still revs high but not as bad as when I'm trying to move from a complete stop. It's an automatic transmission. It doesn't seem to like high speeds either, so going on a highway is out of the question for this car. The shifting of gears seems to be fine, but the high reving doesn't seem to stop until I'm going 25 to 35, sometimes 40. everything I seem to look up about this problem seems to point in many directions, I'm trying to narrow it down without having to take it somewhere. It does not sputter, choke or stalls its High revs most of the time with hardly and initial acceleration.

Ur transmission is bad. There's a clutch inside it that is bad. Take transmission filter off and take it apart and look for metal shavings if there is ur transmission is bad

Thank you, the best answer I have found so far to where this sucks because I don't really have the money to replace anything for a transmission, so if this is the case its getting junked.
