Um.... I know this is way late, but with the 6G74's either clogged injectors or worn out O2 sensor (located just before the catalytic converter) are the most common causes of sluggish acceleration/ power loss.

Get the injectors inspected & ultrasonically cleaned as this will make them perform like new. You can buy an O2 sensor for these either at your local auto shop or on line. Best to get a professional to do both of these if you are not too savvy with car servicing.

Just want to ask if what s the possible problem in my 6g74 pajero if sometimes the acceleration bugs down looks likes choking and cant pull once the aircon is switched for a long time??

One possibility is that the aircon is putting a load on the engine and it is overheating. Check your temp gauge. If the engine overheats, or for a number of other reasons, the car's computer shuts down the acceleration, putting it into limp mode so that you can reach a garage without damage to the engine.
If this is so, have a service agent check the car's cooling system. It might work fine while there are no extras demanding more power from the engine, but complains with extra load.

Suzuki esteem 1995 has a weak fire. What could cause that

yes, a bad cam sensor cause car not to start. Usually it is some type of fuel pick up problem, or fuel filter. It is possible the engine was slightly flooded, causing it to loose power. This all happened to me when i had an 1987 Corvette. One day i was driving, then it just stalled when i was on a local road. Thank god not on a freeway, cause when it stalled, the steering became locked up. But i did what the manual told me to do, if the engine has became flooded, push the accelerator to the floor and crank the engine. And that go me going again, and strait to the mechanics. It was all in fuel pick up and i need a new fuel filter.

When accelerating there is no power but when releasing accelerator slowly power picks up. why is this happening 2001 ml270 cdi

Hi, this is a common symptom of a clogged fuel filter that is straining the fuel pump itself.

When you accelerate, this initiates a rapid fuel flow through the lines. if the filter cant pass the proper amount, its will stall or hesitate the engine and cause sputtering or loss of power. due to this clogged filter, the pump cant keep up with your acceleration demands at this time. the reason for the power pick up upon De acceleration, is because the lower amount of fuel is able to pass through quite easily but, as soon as you demand more power, the clog will obstruct the more intense flow of fuel to the injectors.

Simply replacing the fuel filter and pump will fix this issue.

Please rate and god bless:)
