Hello,
It would appear from your description that maybe your oxygen sensor is playing up or the Catalytic converter is possibly up for renewal?
Hope this points you in the right direction,

Toyota Prado 97 (petrol). Can jump start but has loss of power when put in gear or lights, whipers or anything else turned on. Battery indicator says ok.


It sounds like you might have a bad alternator. You can't always trust you gauges. Jump it off again and check the voltage at the battery. You should have 14 volts. If it is less then that you have a bad alternator. Good luck.

I have a 2001 (Y) BMW 318ise e46. when i start the car i have less than 1000rpm, and when setting off it judders and bucks with very little power. When in 3rd gear it seems to be ok but it wont go above...


The engine is misfiring, probably needs a good tune up or a large vacume leak. Scan the engine for codes since the engine light is on and it will tell you the problems.

check the accelarator cable isnt stretched (rev the car from the peddle, then from under the hood and listen for any rev differences) although its just been serviced also check that its had a replacement air filter. this could be restricting air.

Ford festiva is losing compression


That most likely would be a fuel system problem. Other, less, likely would be transmission. Does the vehicle run OK at idle?

You may need to look for a vacuum leak or double check your timing advance/****** is operating correctly.Use a can of carburettor cleaner lightly sprayed around suspect areas,do with engine running and if there is a leak it will stop the engine running.As far as the fuel system goes crimp the fuel return line with appropriate tool so you dont damage it and see if it improves.If it does you do have a fuel problem with the pump or the pressure relief valve
