From a stop, I have to press the gas pedal down and the RPMs to about 2500 in order for the car to move. The engine light has gone on, but now it's off and when I take it the mechanic, they can "feel and see" the problem but the diagnostic isn't coming up with anything.

    Have you or the mechanic checked the transmission fluid level and condition? Also, why have you selected the vehicle-speed-sensor tag?

  • @GdD in UK the auto is usually standard on up-market models, otherwise with manual as standard on base models and auto as an option. When I looked up Avalon (which I never heard of) it could not see which it was. Jul 14 '21 at 10:57
