Going with power lose. Check the grounds. Main three are from the battery to engine, battery to body, and engine to body. I wold check for codes, even if the light is not on. There could be some pending.
Too much O2 in exhaust is a hollllllly exhaust so check exhaust for leaks,as for the battery then if its more than 2 yrs old renew and get a good one not a cheapie like i fit to cars,the loss of power i have no idea with a play under the bonnet sorry hood ,,,,must reinstate the queens english to my colonial cousins and revoke the independance charter, just think no guns allowed ?? the U put back into the language like colour and of course the increase in fuel duty to pay for all the immigrants from the middle east so 10 dollars a gallon?? anyway enough of winding up my bros stateside and the low power when cold ?? got to think about this one so going for a tea break --right check the water inlet to the inlet manifold as if blocked up or not connected it could be freezing up where the butterfly throttle valve is reducing the air intake which would cause loss of power -also try reading the temperature of the air intake in case the sensor is faulty causing the vehicle not to allow the autochoke to operate ,now i most likely totally wrong in my answer here but from afar and without my head under the engine compartment i can only make a few suggestions as to the cause of the problem.
Yes, that is normal operation for an engine. It needs to run at higher idle when cold and the computer does that through the temp sender. Make sure it's not excessive due to any vacuum leaks. This and the AC power loss would be exaggerated if the engine is not running correctly.
The alternator is going out,now,the alternator can be bad,or the voltage regulator,in the computer(on this vehicle),Have the alternator checked out,13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts is what it needs to be,with the headlights on,and ac,high blower setting,it needs to be checked,at the battery with the engine running,and these components on.
The first things to check should be the operation of the choke or cold start.It could be not working properly or out of adjustment.When cold and the key is turned on,you should see the linkages work on the intake of the motor.2nd.Check all fuel filters and lines are all good.3rd.Check the sparkplugs are all in good order.It sometimes only takes one to playup when its very cold and you wont get it going..Try these first and I hope it helps
Had the same problem with check engine light coming on, loss of power, missing always starting to accel and in speeds between 10-30 mph, little smoke coming out of exhaust. Took it to the shop come to find out the catylic converter had been rusted out due to wear and tear or age. Spent 200.00 dollars since I knew the guy to replace it and now the car runs great.
Check if your wires are on TIGHTLY on the battery, if one loses a touch, your car will shut off. If you go over a tiny bump, or turn to one side or another, they could disconnect, causing your car to lose a + or a - cable connection. Which would very well make your car shut off. Also, check for any corrosion on the battery terminals. Good luck.
