acceleration

  1. Problems & Issues
    Here is a video of what happens underneath when I start my 2004 244,000mi EX, and what I believe to be the source of my acceleration/deep engine noise. Am I missing a gasket?
  2. Problems & Issues
    My 2004 EX Element with 244,xxx miles started having this issue yesterday. I parked at a park (and shut the car off and got out to walk around..) and made a call, and went back to start my car and this happened: It didn't start, as if I had only turned the key to accessory, which I don't think...
  3. Problems & Issues
    Hello, I have read lots of threads on this site but some are very old and I didn't find a real solution for me so here goes: I have a 2005 5-Speed E with 220,000 kms. There is a noticeable vibration on acceleration in 1st through 3rd gears (most noticeable in first gear at 3/4 to full...
  4. Under The Hood / Performance
    Had my 2008 LX w/123K for a few weeks. It is not yet a daily driver (my Rav4 lease expires in 2 weeks). But I took it for a spin today and on the way home, under light acceleration, it went chug, chug, chug (fast hesitations). I backed off the gas pedal and it went smooth. Happened again after...
  5. Problems & Issues
    Hello! I've been lurking around this forum for years, basically since I bought my Element brand new in 2007. She's never given me any trouble, until today... This morning, I noticed a grinding/growling sound from the front left of the car. I can feel the vibration of this sound in my left foot...
  6. Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Test drove an 06 Element EX-P AWD with 120k yesterday, it is in good condition overall but the only other V4 I've driven is a 94 Nissan Sentra which feels quick for its size because it's smaller and I imagine lighter. However, the Element's acceleration felt like it was holding back, like it...
  7. Problems & Issues
    Forgive me as I am not mechanically inclined and have only a passing knowledge of most of this topic. I have an 06 Element with an A/T. I bought her when she had around 64,000 miles and she has around 83,000 now. Besides oil changes the only other service she has needed is the starter needed...
  8. Problems & Issues
    Hi all. I got my hands on a 2003 EX auto last October with right at 88k miles on it. I've taken it to 97k, but have an issue that I am just not sure what to think about. First of all the car has a very extensive maintenance record with almost exclusively dealer servicing. The only...
  9. Problems & Issues
    I have 07 Element SC with about 85,000 miles on it. I have noticed for about the last 20,000 a shaking during acceleration. Let me explain: Usually happens within the first 10 minutes of starting happens during my acceleration, only during the 30-40mph range. it is s light shudering if that is...
  10. Problems & Issues
    I have a 2003 E 4wd EX manual with 118,000, and was wondering where this vibration is coming from. The car has a suddle vibration at idle, and under heavy acceleration the car vibrates. I am most certain it is coming from the engine/drivetrain area, not tires. I have deduced that the...
  11. Problems & Issues
    My Element which I just bought four days ago has worked great. Today i started it up and took off the e brake and it took off and my foot wasn't on any of the pedals. It kept speeding up. The breaks slow it down so i'm not to conserned but i know that can't be normal. It speeds up to about...
