Car: 1988 4dr (AE92) with 3spd auto tranny

Sometimes when accelerating from a dead stop I notice that the rpm would climb but stop at 2.5K rpm and stay there for a few seconds and then continue to climb. During that time the car has no pull at all. I have to keep the gas pedal almost floored to keep up or stay ahead of traffic. Other times when accelerating the rpm would climb and pass 2.5K rpm than the car would accelerate just fine without any hesitation.

Is it normal for a 3spd auto to do this? :confused:

did you guys checked:

- the fuel lines from tank to the front

- the fuel pump and fuel filter

- the gas tank, if it's dirty it might clog-up the lines


if it's not hesitating ALL the time then it can't be your tranny, but i could be wrong. the last time this happened to me, my fuel line go pinched so check those first.
