My car will turn on but not accelerate?

Posted at: 2015-04-14 
I own a manual 2003 nissan 350z.

A while ago i got into a small accident which caused my two right wheels to break off and skid on its right side. When i raised it i got in it to turn it on just to check if it still runs. i managed to turn it on but when i put it to gear it would accelerate at all and the rps were idolizing at 1500 which is way too high. So does the skid have anything to do with that or is it just that it doesn't feel any traction so it stops accelerating?

There is likely some sort of electronic traction control and when it senses that the front wheels are not turning, limits the speed.

I agree with Mike. It may be the muffler bearing or possibly the air pressure in the drivers seat might be a bit low?

That is NOT a small accident kid, You need it looked at by a mechanic as it is obvious you are going nowhere with only two wheels.

Sounds like a loose muffler bearing, or possibly you need to adjust the oscillator adjustment screw. Hope this helps.
