Dig deep into the gas, and the tach needle flies toward its 6,700-rpm redline at breakneck speed. My vehical was luckily on the city street. I turned the car off for a few minutes, started it, light was off and it drove fine. The car lost acceleration and a vehicle behind me almost rear-ended my vehicle.

I was pulling out on a back road that was 60mph and as soon as I pressed the gas to speed up with traffic it was as if the car lost all power. There were no gear lights indicated on the dash.
