SOURCE: Losing Power

2.5L is really lacking on power. what had to do is route the air inlet tube for the filter box to the front of the truck right beside the radiator that what it pushes air into the motor and have more power. now the truck gets better gas mileage and has more power to get over the hill. only thing is the filter gets dirty more often and gas mileage goes down in the winter cause the cold air makes it use more gas

SOURCE: head lights dimming and losing power while driving

Next time this happens, pull over and unscrew the gas cap. The vent may be clogged.

Otherwise, your catalytic converter may be failing. It can also clog and hinder engine exhaust.

Good luck !

SOURCE: '94 4.0L Ford Explorer losing power

Shouldn't cost much for 10 minutes work to test fuel pressure & confirm pump condition, but do it when vehicle 's been running for a while, long enough for pump to get heated up.

SOURCE: Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?

I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.

SOURCE: Ford 460 loses power then dies. Starts back up. Idles fine.

It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

This is an electrical problem, I had this last winter where the car was restarting or the starter was not disengaging. The problem was with the starter. the contacts that meet the plunger in the starter were grooved severely and binded with the contacts.
I had to replace the contacts inside the starter.

you might need to check the fuel pressure while the car is going through its paces.

You can check to see if the fuel pressure regulator is failing at speed.

Your alternator needs to be checked, if it goes bad the car will run of the battery but when the battery gets low the car will lose power and when the battery goes dead the car will just die and not restart. Did the engine even turn over when you tried to crank it if so its probably the alternator. I hope that helps you out!

1991 Dodge dakota dies for no reason on hwy and smells flooded


Could be a couple of different sensors. MAP, oxygen, crank, or cam sensors to name a few. You will need to have it checked out on a computer to find out what it is doing for sure though.

My truck loses power


In most cases it is the fuel filter. I don't know when it was changed before, but it should be changed at least every 8-10 k miles. Make sure you change the air filter too.

I have a 1994 Dodge Dakota, no power at low rpms


yes it does if it is reading lets say lower than normal that would explain easy start up and stalling later.the coolant temp sensor has two wires .so if your car warms up and your coolant is about 200 degrees your coolant sensor might say 80 degrees .access to a scanner to check temp would be great.
