Question about Holden Cars & Trucks
Been to the mechanics and had the gas fully serviced and checked on the computer and last week they did the plugs and leads but I am still having the same problem when driving I lose power over 80kms and sometimes from 0-80kms
Clogged fuel filter.Could be a really bad clogged air filter. My guess is fuel.

hi this may sound odd to you but worth looking into ?? from what you have described may i suggest that your problem may be the fuel tank is becoming vacuumed due to possible tank breather being either blocked or kinked ? this will allow car to start ok and run for some distance whilst the engine is using fuel drawn from the tank via fuel pump ok? then as fuel is used it is not being replaced by atmosphere air in tank ? resulting in vacuum so engine is starved of fuel as pump cannot overcome vac and fuel delivery to engine slows ? but when you stop the vac will slowly clear and all is ok till next time ? try this temporary leave tank filler cap loose an road test if no prob's then check the breather pipe normally clipped alongside filler pipe? under wheel arch ? where all rain/mud etc will come into contact? hope this helps ?

I took my car to a Renault dealer and they solved the same problem by replacing the non-standard 4 prong spark plugs that the previous owner had in the car with the standard 2 prong spark plugs Renault recommends. My water pump also needed to be replaced (different issue, and was identified with a mechanical noise). I also proactively changed the fuel and oil filters along with new oil.
You might also want to look at getting the coils tested, as these tend to fail often causing loss of power, and a mechanical noise.
In most situations, it is better to take your car to the approved Renault dealer to check the fault. My experience with using other mechanics to fix faults on the car was less than desirable, and ends up costing more.
