Accelaration problem I have recently bought a C40 1998 It was fine until I put petrol in now when its going along the power drops to the point of stalling then picks up. This only happens now and again. I have seen on another problem could be fuel pressure and filter needs checking. How do I do this sorry I'm a woman!!

Well you need special tools to check fuel pressure. The filter, you will run into the same problem,tools. You're on the right track though,it probably is a fuel pressure problem. Another possible problem,based on it picks up & slows down is a clogged catalytic converter. Ask back if this doesn't help.

HYUNDAI TERRACAN LOSING POWER... Hi, I have a 2002 Hyundai terracan that has been losing power. along the highway and straight roads it was fine but on an incline it loses power and now has a job to do...


run the fault codes for an exact diagnosis but from your description of the problem I would be looking at a failing cat converter as it may be blocking up the exhaust system

My fiat Palio keeps accelarating automatically. the accelarator cable is not stuck and the accelaration is intermitant .


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Accelarate problems


Hi, you might find that what you need to do is buy a fuel cleaning additive this goes into the fuel tank when you top your tank up this then cleans all the fuel lines and cleans all the injectors out properly doing this should solve your problem.
Once you have put it in your tank it usually takes about 30 miles of drive time to clean the whole system through it might be also worth getting the fuel filter cleaned if this has not been done recently.

Make sure you buy the correct fuel cleaner ie petrol or diesel then follow instructions on the bottle and you should find that over time this will solve your problem. I recommend to all my customers to use this about once every 6 to 8 weeks or so to ensure smooth running and maximum fuel efficiancy try and use a better brande product such as red x these tend to work better than shops own brands.

These can be brought from most petrol stations or car spare shops.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Lacetti Chevrolet. Malfunction Indicator light is on.


It may be the same problem as my 56 plate Lacetti. The yellow malfunction light came on two weeks ago and two days ago, both times shortly after filling up with petrol to the brim, and I suspect it is the petrol sensor as I only clicked the petrol cap once after fitting it back - the handbook says click it several times. The yellow light also came on yesterday after taking the car a short journey so it is likely that the sensor is still picking up a small escape of petrol, but the car has been fine today with no light appearing now that the fuel level has dropped a bit. Like you, I have not noticed any drop in power with the light on.

My 1998 Volvo does the same sometimes. Better petrol helps for me, these engines like the higher octane petrol. My car does not like the BP petrol at all for example.
