    could that also explain this:

    ill be drivin it from point A to B...but sometimes before i can make it somewhere...it will just stop accelerating...if i hit the gas at all it will just rev up and the car will coast...if i come to a complete stop...im screwed...cuz it wont go no where...

    now if i let it sit for a lil bit...then crank it back up...it will start to go again...but only for a short period of time...


    edit...sorry if im threadjacking...just need to figure this out...its pissin me off...i get my paycheck this week...lol...so hopefully ill be able to get that ecu ordered soon...lol

    It sounds like your clutch is slipping(if a manual tranmission), or your transmission is slipping(if automatic). Don't believe a ecu swap is going to help that problem.

    yeah, thats sounds like a clutch prob...if your engine just decides it hates your tranny, its not your ecu. if i remember right, you drive an automatic. i think it might be time to replace the torque converter.

    MOST(as in 95% of the time) of the time when an automatic transmission starts slipping it is because the friction materials are worn. Time for a rebuild if it's an automatic.
