Question about 2005 Peugeot 405

1 Answer

Loss of power on acceleration

When I put my foot to the floor it takes much longer to get up to speed,it seems to struggle a lot and sometimes the revs are high and it still seems to creep along. I had just had two drop links fitted and my alternator reconditioned and when I drove ot away from the garage it sounded quite throaty! after a day or two I was filling the water jets up and noticed that they had left the airfilter lid off! could this of contributed to loss of power?

Yes it can because of the air flow control valve,also if its revving up and not going anywhere then the clutch is slipping

2010 Nissan Pathfinder Cruise Control issues


First I'll assume you haven't read the owners Manuel, Cruise control is not perfect on any vehicle. if coming to a hill put foot on gas to help rpm, going down hill put foot on brake to keep same speed, cruise control operates off of engine vacuum. Speed sensors can be affected by putting on smaller or bigger tires than what is on drivers door.

Check fuel filter and fuel pump, a clogged filter can cause loss of power during acceleration and a malfunctioning pump can cause the same thing
