So Im having some troubles with my truck. As I put it into drive and press my foot onto the pedal, the engine sputters and jumps for a couple seconds and then the truck moves, but it has little to no pickup behind it. Also sometimes when Im at a complete stop and I press my foot on the gas, the engine doesnt rev at all for a couple seconds, and then it will start me moving.
When I floor the pedal, the engine sputters and then begins to rev, but the gears dont catch and I wind up going nowhere.
When I am moving and I take my foot off the gas and then put it back on, the engine waits a few seconds and then begins to rev and I continue on moving.
A family friend that is a head mechanic for the State Police said that the reason for the sputtering is because the seals in my transmission have hardened up, and to put a shot of brake fluid in my transmission fluid to soften them up, but it didnt work. What might be the reason that my truck wont accelerate fast and the sputtering?
