If it is dirty and clogged. almost all air cleaners cause a power loss. K & N and other brands make "highh flow" filters and these still cause a restriction, but most engines are calibrated to accept the filter restriction. if your filter is dirty, clean it or better yet, buy a new one. they are very cheap and improve performance as well as gas milage. whatever you do DONT run an engine without one!

A blocked fuel filter could cause the engine to lose power on a 92 Honda Civic DX. Fuel injectors that need changing or cleaning could also be the cause.

The most common cause for an engine to lose power is a plugged fuel line or nonworking fuel pump. A plugged air filter can also cause the problem.

A partially clogged fuel filter will cause hard starting, stalling, and loss of power. It will also cause the fuel pump to overheat and self destruct.

a variety of things can cause any car to lose power, including age, if the car is correctly serviced, oil filter/air filter/fuel filter needing replacement, oil needing to be changed, or just an engine problem. in your case it could be a problem with the CVVT.

The most common reason for a engine to miss and lose power is a lack of fuel. A dirty fuel filter can cause an intermittent fuel supply to the engine.

Sounds like the fuel isn't getting into the engine. Could be a filter problem, or perhaps a pump problem.

User Avatar

Yes it can.... if the fuel is so cold it will start to get wax crystals in it. Therefore the engine is not getting enough fuel and you will lose power and is clogging up your fuel filter. Other reasons can be clogged air filter, fuel filter, or water in fuel. Change the air filter and drain the fuel filter or change it if it's a year old or worse older.

If engine power then check the anaroid valve on the injection pump.

if you have a carborator, it may have to be adjusted

Dirty fuel filter, dirty air filter, bad catalytic converter, restricted exhaust, insufficient fuel pressure.

There are lots of things that can cause that. Bad gas, dirty fuel filter, dirty air filter, and a number of other things can cause it.

User Avatar

not necessarily, only if the filter is completely clogged will it cause the engine not to start. this rarely happens suddenly. you would notice a sever lose of performance first.

Could be a restricted exhaust (plugged cat), restricted intake (plugged air filter), restricted fuel system (plugged fuel filter).
