Q: slow acceration when pulling off from a stop or parked position. on 2002 Isuzu Axiom

I do not get quick acceleration, it tends to stagger and I have to let up off the gas pedel and slowly accelerate or other wise it just hesitates. It acts as though it is stuck in one gear until drive kicks in and then I can drive slowly accelerating to normal speed.

Have the trans fluid level checked. It has to be done on a lift by someone that knows what they are doing. See other answers to trans problems above.
I have the same problem and also have a 2002... did you find out what the problem was?
U have a problem with your transmission, I had the same problem back in September. I also have a 2002 Axiom, and they had to update my transmission. The regular transmissions in a 2002 Axioms are worthless. I like the car, but If I would have reviewed the car before I bought it, I would not have purchased it.
