With any luck the clutch may just need adjustment. Worn clutch plates require adjustment, much like brake pads as they wear.

How can I adjust my polo classic 1998 fuel injection revs.Normaly it idle on 900, but now increased to 1300 to 1600

knocked the ECT connector wires loose?
so my guess you mean, hot engine races,because cold engines all do that , by design.
racing idle hot.
  1. engine not hot. thermostat bad.
  2. engine hot and Ect Sensor lies, (wires fell off)
  3. ISC valve stuck open or wires, bad to it.
  4. vacuum hose knocked loose or you cracked it, now sucks air and engine races, (speed density EFI systems
  5. .

Nissan Cefiro A33 vs Toyota corolla 121 G vvti

OK, first you need to know the specs of both cars to have a guided guess. It is simple, find he the Horsepower (hp) for both, and the wiegh in pounds (Lb). Then for each car Divide the weight by the horsepower Lb/Hp and this will giive you how many pounds every horsepower has to carry. Compare results for both cars and the one with less pounds for each horsepower will have better chances of wining. Remember this is just a guided guess, since it works for cars in ideal perfect condition. There are other things which can change the results. One can be the hability of the driver to drive and to react in the start line.
You can help yourself by having your car loose weigh. For example, go to the race with a minimal amount of gas. Gas is heavy. Race alone in your car. Good Luck!! Be careful.

2002 jetta tdi rebuilt transmission .While on test drive started loosing power ..lots of black smoke ..ECL code p1556

have you tried at all to reset the program of the automatic transmission ? Always remember that even a simple connector been removed for second and re connected always needs adaptation before starting the car VW. Try to do the automatic transmission with adaptation.

Dash lights go on and off, odometer needle drops to zero, races back up, rpm needle drops and races back up as does the gas gage needle. car does not lose power. dash light module???

its a loose connection, i've dealt with it in my truck for years, you can remove the entire dash to check all connections and change lights but its a HUGE job., if you can live with it, otherwise take it to a pro to have it done.

While racing on a 1/4 mile dirt track. my 1991 stanza is loosing power. along with this it has started drinking fuel at about a mile per gallon

This doesn't sound like a normal engine problem, I suspect that you have a fuel leak that is spaying fuel somewhere. If you are not getting the proper amount of fuel to the motor, that would also explain the lack of power.

Starts to loose power after car gets hot

Cherry red? is the car tuned? as in racing-tuned? Maybe is the catalyst that needs replacementdue to clogging, or the oxygen sensor not working properly, sending a richer mix of fuel than a lean one, causing overheating. Loss of power is because of the overheating. Check the engine temp, and fluids constantly and fix it ASAP. This behavior could lead to athermal exhaustion of the head, fouling fire in chambers, and bending valves, As I said, repair ASAP.
