PROBLEM: LACKING POWER, AND EXPERIENCING SLUGGISH ACCELERATION


Guessing here, might help to know the make/model/year/engine.
Sounds like you're running in "limp mode" because one of your sensors is either bad or simply not hooked up. Perhaps TPS (throttle position sensor) or MAF (Mass AirFlow)

Check you steering and duspension system. Check ball joints and steering linkages. With the vehicle in the floor have someone move the steering wheel side to side. Not whole turns just side to side movement while you look at the steering linkage to identify any loose parts. Then raise the vehicle and check your ball joints by grabbing top and bottom of the tires and shaking them.

Wobbly steering wheel , started yesterday, no big hits or potholes , or no bigger than normal. tires haves some tread but all 4 need to be replaced. is it an alignment issue or something more costly?


If it wobbles at higher speeds like 55-60 mph or so probabley just worn and out of balance tires,If it wobbles at like 25-30mph or so at a lower speed it probabley mean you have a tire seperating and it could blow out at anytime and you would definitely need new tires,at least more than likely the front two.
