Question about Nissan Pulsar
I've been pulling my hair out with my car at the moment. She is losing power intermittently. First I thought maybe it was the fuel filter or a petrol problem, as it only happens every now and then, like going up steep inclines or turning into another road, but not all the time. We have changed the gear box oil. I don't know whether it was just coincidence, but the motor in the air conditioning has been making a funny noise and it did stop working until my other half changed one of the fuses in it. We drove this morning without using the air conditioning and the car seemed to drive alot better. Would a faulty air conditioner have anything to do with the motor losing power like that?
It's quite possible that your A/C compressor is locking up, thereby causing excessive load on the engine.(translates into lack of power to drive wheels) Typically there are signs, such as the noises you heard, or a slipping or thrown belt. If the compressor is locking up, being belt driven it will draw excess power from the engine. It's also possible that the compressor clutch in conjunction with compressor is going bad as well (both are usually related). That would cause excessive amperage to be drawn through the circuit, thereby blowing the fuse. Ultimately, it sounds like you have figured out your own problem, but I hope what I've posted helps.
