Hey Scott==Check the cat convertor. Put a vacuum gauge on the engine and see what vacuum you have at 900rpm.It should be about 18 inches. Then rev it to 3500 and it should not drop over about 5 inches. If it drops to 8 or9 inches and stays there at that rpm, the conv is plugged. GoodluckJoe
Sometimes this condition is caused by a dirty fuel filter.
It depends on what you mean by "loses all power". If you mean the electrical system stops working (i.e. engine quits, no lights, etc.) then it could also be caused by a dead alternator or battery, broken alternator belt, bad electrical connections, etc.
If a Volkswagen Jetta loses power while driving uphill, one possible explanation is that the mass airflow sensor has gone bad. Another possibility is that the intake manifold could be clogged. The only way to know for sure what's wrong is to take the car to a mechanic.
One thing that could be wrong with a 2013 Chrysler 200 when it loses power and smells like rotten eggs is the catalytic converter needs to be replaces. When a car has a rotten egg smell, this is usually the cause.
Sound like a transmission problem. Check your fluid first.
A 95 Toyota Corolla engine that loses power when idling can have a number of different things wrong with it including clogged injectors, a dirty fuel filter, or fouled spark plugs. Performing a standard tune-up will often resolve this issue.
If it lost all power it could be the battery connection.
fuel filter could be clogged or the fuel pump is going out on it.
this can be caused by , bad plugs, bad coil, dirt in the fuel system or timing could be wrong
I think the it is the South Capital Metro, but i could be wrong about that.
Usually a sighn of bad alternator.
You shouldn't be able to overheat a Geo Metro unless there is something wrong.
Getting fuel? yes
It could be the spark plug wires that's what was wrong with mine.
Go to court and testify with proof, witnesses, or evidence, that you WEREN'T driving on the wrong side of the road.
It is most likely your spark plugs. Check those out, sounds like your losing power.
Change the T.P.I. thotle possition indicator. I had the asame problem on my 1994 geo metro. email@example.com
To dream someone is driving backwards means that the dreamer is dependent on the driver and that the person driving is leading the dreamer the wrong way. If the dreamer is driving backwards it means that the dreamer's life is going in a direction in life they know to be wrong.
Could be in need of a tune up... carb and timing adjustment. New plugs,wires,rotor, dist cap.Tune ups are needed on a regular basis ussualy once a year depending on the amount of miles you put on the car? The charging system sounds o.k but tune up may be in order.
it loses enegy the other person who said it was gaining was wrong !!~ :) HOPE I HELPED
Sounds like clutch issues. When the clutch (a wearable component), which transfers the engine power to the transmission (and on to the wheels), wears to the point that it can no longer transfer that power (ie. torque), it will actually start to slip, increasing engine rpm's and losing power (torque) to your wheels. The cure is replacement of the clutch.
i dont no sorry
It means one of you was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Your car may need power steering fluid if it makes a buzzing noise when you turn the wheel.
whats wrong if my car wont shift to the next gear automaticly when its driving
By not driving, taking cabs, the bus, or having a designated driver is better than anything that can go wrong when you are driving under the influence.
The Bible says God gives authority to those He wills. It is not power itself that is wrong, but the abuse of that power. EDIT : Though I disagree with the use of the Bible as citation for this idea, that is correct. Power is only wrong if it is imposed upon a party in a way that is unjust; the reception of power itself is not an inherent evil. That said, "power corrupts."
