PROBLEM: LACKING POWER, AND EXPERIENCING SLUGGISH ACCELERATION


Guessing here, might help to know the make/model/year/engine.
Sounds like you're running in "limp mode" because one of your sensors is either bad or simply not hooked up. Perhaps TPS (throttle position sensor) or MAF (Mass AirFlow)

Hi I recently purchased a second hand ingersoll rand 150 litre air compressor. I purchased it as I am going to be spray painting a whole vehicle. I began this morning with priming the bumpers and the...


I believe you have a bad valve on the hp side. You may also have broken a valve on the lp side and it blew thru to the hp side and got under a hp valve causing it not to seat. If you remove the hp head and valve plate take a good look at the finger valves. You may find 1 or more with carbon under them or broken. You will need to replace both hp and lp sides.

I recently purchased a 2003 hyuandai tiburon GT with 171k miles on it i was on the interstate doing 80 mph in 4th gear at around 6k rpm when my clutch pedal dropped back into the floor board and just...


hmmm... 80mph @6000 rpm is not normal. you are needing a lot of power to produce 80mph. it seems clutch assembly needs replacement. clutch assembly includes clutch disc, fly wheel, and release bearing. might as well check your clutch master if the vacuums are still working properly. this might be the culprit to the stuck up clutch pedal.

after replacing the clutch assembly, you can reach 80mph @ 4000-4500rpm

2011 Nomad 1700 lacks power in 6th gear especially in heavy wind or in mountains. Always shifting down to 5th to keep up. Only 33 mpg doing 70 mph. Improves to 39 MPG at 55. I had a 2003 1600 Classic...


nomads are heavy bikes mate and i feel all is as should be with yours, top gear is usually for on the straight and cruising, at a constant speed. my vtx 1800 does similar albeit only 5 speed i still have to pull down a cog and work the gears on hills. the mpg doesnt sound a miss for the nomad either. my vtx does similar.

1988 chevy celebrity No fuel to the carberator.


without starting the engine position the key to the on position.
you can hear the fuel pump operationing for 4 to 6 seconds upon having the key on.
if not heard running check the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay, and the engines oil pressure switch.
they all work the pump you see
the engine oil pressure switch runs the pump untill the engine reaches normal pressure
once the pressure is reached to the normal range the computer shuts that circuit off and turns the fuel pump relay on

When driving at about 30 mph occasionally the drive seems to slip and then catch. car is 2005 1.6 fsi with 80k on clock


the gearbox is a computer controlled auto with 4th lock up (O/D) and should, if driven very carefully,change from fluid drive to mechanical drive at about 30 mph.to check transmision carry out the following.
from standstill,put car in drive,no gas,and let the car reach max speed(about 30 ish)then.
from standstill using 1/3 gas pedal (do not move gas foot)let the car accelerate to max speed.
lastly, put car in drive and floor gas pedal(make sure you are alone)then
drive as economically as you can, the gearshift patern will then adjust to your driving style(takes about 50 miles)You will feel the car go from fluid to mechanical drive as a kind of slight drop in revs then ...engage.
assuming you have checked fluid level first of course....
