first when i drive, my car will slowly decrease to an idle when i shift to neutral instead of just falling to idle it will stick at 2000 and drop after i shift into 1st.

second, my clutch pedal vibrates iradically because the bushing is broken, how much would that cost to get fixed at an auto shop.

third, this car was in a wreck so my front end squeaks when i turn the wheel and hit bumps, i'm guessing its my ring and pinion but idk how to make the squeak cease.

finally, my car is a 5spd and when i shift and go thru my gears at full throttle my car will just kinda barely pick up speed and then it'll hit like 3000rpms and it will kick like i just got boost from a turbo charger idk what it is but it knocks you back in yer seat lol.

so i'd input would be great. thanks=]

1. Normal for a 5 speed to stay up in rpm's for 30 second when putting it in neutral.

2. You would have to check the local shops for an estimate on the TOB.

3. Check your ball joints. They are most likely the culprit.

4. Clean your mass air sensor and throttle body.

okay that is real funny you mentioned that.

you konw those torque to horsepower converter calcs online. well i did a stock v6 00' and told me our motor only has 115hp. is that wheel horsepower, is the calc wrong, or is our peak torque actually at 4,550rpm?? cuz that rpm gave me 190hp.

Those calculations are only estimates, and rarely do they come up with the right answer. Our cars peak torque is somewhere are 2500-3000 i think, and the peak horsepower is at redline, about 5,250-5,500 i think.
