Hi, my engine light on my ssangyong kyron 2006, comes on and when it does, when i accelarate it goes slower, please help

If the light you are referring to is the check engine light! This generates a code when on, if the light was on then it will hold the code in the memory, if you have had the codes read then they would have been able to access the code.....what is the code? From your description it sounds like your vehicle is going into limp home mode to stop further damage, retrieve the active or saved code and this will tell you where the problem area is!

My 98 volkswagon jetta has an issue when you hit the gas it accelarates 4 about 2 seconds then it seems to lose power then when you let off the gas 4 2 seconds u can accelarate again then it will stop and...


First clean the throttle body to eliminate it as a potential cause. Use some carb cleaner on a rag to remove as much of the deposits as you can but do not spray the carb cleaner directly into the throttle body itself. This oftem resolves issues such as this.

If this fails to resolve the issue - have the car scanned for fault codes as a problem like this is often associated with faulty sensors or a misfire in the engine.

You can have this done at AutoZone for free and this will give you a definite diagnostic pointer as to what is causing the problem.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.
