      Is the trans fluid full? it could be the trans. pump or the tork converter plugged? im not for sure. It is difficult to assess with no visual. (look under the car see if the parking brake cable is caught on something)

      check and see if the exhaust pipe is touching. Check the motor mount brackets are mounted tight.( Not the rubber mounts but the brackets that bolt to the motor and sub-frame). I am interested to know why. Todd

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.
      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires

    I get code p0606 what is meant by this code?
    what are the sensors need to replace?

      P0606 means ECM/PCM Processor Fault. P0606 occurs when the computer senses an internal fault in the vehicle's PCM. A sophisticated scanner is required to analyze the stored freeze-frame data, and the repair should be performed at a shop with that equipment.

      Possible Causes:

      Defective ECM/PCM

      Possible Solutions:
      Replace and reprogram the PCM

      Check to see if the brake lights come on when pressing on the pedal, then youll know if its the brake switch or not. they are mounted by the top of the pedal. you may have to bent your way under the dash to see it.

    When ever my car shifts gears, it makes a screeching sound.
    When i start driving and getting up to speed on the road, i hear a screeching sound every time it shifts and I'm getting concerned because its happening more often now. No lights are on for check engine or anything.

      Odd sounds coming from your car can be an early sign that something is wrong with you vehicle. Get your vehicle checked by a professional immediately. At the same time, you should get your oil and engine checked.
