What would cause an'01 grand Am GT to lose power when accelerating? The RPMs also flutter-almost like the transmission is slipping. When you let off the gas then it will straighten up a little,shift gears, and you can accelerate. The RPMs have been fluttering for a while, but used to only do it in Overdrive, so I nought there may be an issue with the transmission...now,I'm not really sure what to think. The transmission repair shop hooked it up to a diagnostic computer and found no problems and doesn't seem to think this is what it is.

does the engine sound like the rpm's are jumping (does the engine match the tach) if your trans is slipping it will raise the engine rpm and there will be a power loss but that (to me) would be different than fluttering.
