2017 Nissan Rogue Random refusal to accelerate and low RPM
Hey, I've got a 2017 Nissan Rogue with 146,000km or 90,720 miles. Sometimes at around stops, when I floor it, the car refuses to accelerate and the rpm rises very slowly, but the other 90% of the time, it accelerates perfectly. So what could be the problem? It feels a little early for engine damage.
check the obvious things like the air filter, fuel pressure, clean the throttle - it could be plenty of things.
To me it sounds like a transmission issue, some RAV4’s tranny are also suffering from hesitation / no acceleration from a stop. on most car that’s a symptom of transmission issues - usually software / TCM related.
Is there a firmware update for it?
It would’ve be interesting to hook up a good scanner and see if the car’s registering the gas pedal input and how that transmission works.
I really suspect it’s the transmission beginning to slip and anti-slip protection preventing you from revving it enough to begin moving, if you have a habit of flooring it, than a Jatco CVT lasting to 90k miles under those conditions is actually more than average.
Anyhow, I’d take it to local mechanics who can inspect it.
