Alot thnigs could has in there, ignition system, fuel delivery or air admission, etc.

Try to check if some fault code is stored there, scanned the PCM to knowed.

Keep us updated.

Tip

Loss in engine power, sluggish responses, low top speed, etc.


If your car has
  1. Poor fuel responses
  2. Lost its "power"
  3. Low RPM
  4. Lower top speed
  5. Burns a lot of fuel
Then it could be because of carbon build-ups in your engine's combustion chamber. This is left behind with unburned fuel. It causes poor acceleration, a loss in power, lower top speed, and burns more fuel than it really has too. Not to mention causes smoke belching.

The best way to get rid of that would be to have a carbon ridding solution injected into the combustion chamber. The solution will liquify the carbon and other build-ups, which would then restore the "power" of your car. You'll get better acceleration, higher rpm and top speed, save fuel, etc. have a mechanic do it for you. It's alot cheaper and faster than having the engine overhauled (overhaul could trigger "loose compression").

What could be the cause of power loss engine performance of a 240kph car that cant even get to a 160kph speed...?


So many things hard to list them all. Vacuum leaks, tune up parts, bad ignition module, clogged cat converter or muffler, low fuel pressure, leak between MAF and throttle body, bad coolant temp sensor, leaking head gasket, others.

2005 ford icon losing power during acceleration i used injector cleaner it became a bit better then sent it to a mechanic who cleaned the intake manifold and sensor but it became worse now he suggests i...


this is a toy forum? , you might try ford for better answers.....?

iCON, you mean IKON< right?

HOT and cold engine,
Is hot idle speed RPM right near 800 and steady,not racing fast?

power loss, is the CEL lamp glowing running, yes,scan it.
post engine type exactly. one of these?
1.3 L I4 (petrol)
1.6 L I4 (petrol)
1.4 L I4 (diesel)
1.8 L I4 (diesel)

so its the first 2, as you said, coil, so its a GAS engine.
power loss, do the 60k tuneup
clean the MAF, sensor. if it has one. ask how. first.
does engine power return , at wide open throttle, held? up hill?
yes/no
if no, weak maf, air leaks or low fuel presssure
if power loss is only brief, then bad TPS.
my guess this engine, is MAP based, no MAF,
if so, then clean the nipple on the MAP sensors.
make sure its not clogged .
If the map works ,any air leaks cause fast idle. and FULL POWER>
so id bet the power loss is from low fuel pressures.
that is why i ask for WOT power up a hill, hot, got that.
if just tip-in power loss (recovers) that is a bad TPS.
the do wear out. easy, at 100k.

there are 2 EFI systems, which one yours has im clueless but can fix both , easy. (maf or map based) aka. air /speed density systems.

Idle up down


hunting or surging ilde. name the 2 RPMS, low and high , is it hot or cold engine this issue.? 400rpm or 1000 or 2000 all are diff.causes.
no year, stated. so cant help.
but ill answer in the generic,
1: the ECU (got a carb,? )
the ecu controls idle speed at all times.
if not , there is a problem (you)
A: air leaks in the induction will make motor race at some point the ECU/ISC loses control. and hunts. trying hard to correct it.
b: egr stuck open idle too low, iSC cant correct it,, bad EGR.
c: engine EFI running way too leak starving for fuel so it hunts for 2 reasons < ISC hunting, and lean does that.
lean is gross power loss and opening throttle bogs the engine.
so is double bad. ISC makes it worse,

all this breaks down to 2 reasons.
1: ISC bad. in some way (gummed up. or restricted inside)
2: bad fueling or air leaks. vacuum leaks.

try answers , the hot cold question and the 2 speeds, of the hunt.
lowest rpm and highest of the hunted range of RPM.

Loss of Power / Over Heating


eeek, sounds like a possible head gasket failure. Check your coolant and oil. If the coolant is low top it off, and if the oil is milky, you are getting coolant in your oil which is usually a bad head gasket.

Trouble code P0320 ignition/dist. engine speed input circuit


P0320 - Ignition / distributor engine speed circuit malfunction

The ignition engine speed sensor input signal to Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) is continuously monitored. The test fails when the signal indicates that 2 successive erratic profile ignition pickup (PIP) pulses occurred.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- The engine may be harder to start
- The engine may stumble or stall

When is the code detected?
The P0320 code is triggered when 2 successive erratic PIP pulses are detected.

Possible Causes:
- Loose wires/connectors
- Faulty Crank Position Sensors
- Arcing secondary ignition components (coil, wires and plugs)
- Low battery charge
- Powertrain Control Module

Possible Solutions:
- Resecure loose wire or connectors
- If battery charge is low, recharge or replaced battery
- Replaced crank position sensor
- Replaced starter motor


Test it and tell us news.

P1613 fault code & engine will not rev over 3000 rpm when you get to 3000rpm it then fluctutated between 2500 rpm & 3000 rpm causing the car to buckaroo


Crank sensor or engine speed sensor is faulty.

Fault:
Irregular power loss on accelerating
The speed of the engine is limited till 2500rpm
Frequent loss of crankshaft position sensor signal

Cause:
It is caused due to leaking from thermostat housing into crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug

Remedy:
Check and clean the crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug contacts. Rectify the engine coolant leak from the thermostat housing if found. Take a note of the engine coolant level and monitor it for changes, showing a leak is indeed occurring.
