    Wondering if small spurts of acceleration while coasting to a stop is normal?
    When coasting (not using any brakes) to a stop, sometimes my car will have have quick spurt of speed. It's almost as if I pushed the gas pedal for a quick second. Not very much acceleration but enough to notice it.

    Won't Shift Out of Park
    When my car has sat over night, in the morning when I start it, it won't shift out of Park. Seems to need to warm up. Though today when I went through the drive-thru, and quickly put in park briefly, it still wouldn't shift back into Drive Mode. Hope this doesn't ...

      needs new spark plugs

      Scanning the system for trouble codes is the first step. Spark plugs could cause it, but there are other possibilities. An engine tune-up might be a good place to start if it has not been done in a long time.

      I had this problem. Since the car has an enclosed transmission it needs to be taken to the shop and have a flush done on it with a spark plug change. Here where i live it cost me about $900 to have them do that.

    Why does my car take off slow then catch speed and after every stop take off slow again?
    Also before this problem when the car heats up it began to jerk or shift gear hard

      there can be more than one cause for what you are describing, but, just going on my previous experience for the last 30+ years, do this first. plug in a code reader and see what fault codes may be stored, write the code numbers down. If no codes, say that on the updated post. next, try unplugging the mass air flow sensor electrical connector just for a road test. If the problem is gone or almost gone, replace the MAF sensor. If there are codes stored and unplugging the MAF did not change anything, repost with the code numbers you found initially. Unplugging the MAF sensor WILL SET A NEW CODE in memory. That is why I want you to check for codes first, before unplugging the sensor.

    How do I get my automatic transmission to shift right?
    When I'm driving down the road it takes longer to shift. It also drinks a lot if gas and I was told it has to do with the air/fuel intake .

      First you need to turn your car On. This is not starting the car! Turn the key two "clicks" forward. All the dashboard lights should come on, along with the radio and odometer.

      If your GM has the four buttons on the dashboard with all sorts of information:
      One button should have a road or "i" on it. Pushing this button will show your mileage, tire pressure, operating temperature, and all sorts of other stuff.
      You are looking for "oil life ##%". Once you find this, press and hold the button with the check-mark on it. After 5-10 seconds it should flash "oil life reset". Tada!

      If your vehicle does not have the buttons mentioned above:
      Turn the car "On" (without starting car!!)
      Press the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. This is trickier than it sounds. It must be pressed ALL the way to the floor ALL 3 times.
      Then wait 5-10 seconds. The Change Oil Soon light should blink then go out. If not, turn the car off and go through the steps again.
