SOURCE: Sudden loss of power while driving

One thing you should notice that could tell you if the the engine is misfiring is that the check engine light will flash. If it dose it is saying you have a misfire in either one or more cylinders. If the check engine light dose not flash then it could be more of a fuel pump related issue. but as I said 1st thing would be to check the code... then i could tell you whats going on. good luck

SOURCE: Power loss in 2004 Corolla Verso D-4D T2 at speed

You might want to check the MAF sensor(Mass Air Flow) and clean it with MAF/MAP cleaner. I am also kind of puzzled with this problem as I have a 2004 Corolla also, I only had power loss when my MAF went bad.

When driving my 1997 Audi A 4 1.8t there is a loss of power around 3000 rpm, what could be causing the issue?


run the fault codes and look for a problem area in the vane actuator of the turbo
it could be a sensor problem or a MAP sensor problem
this is indicated by the pressures being generated or not generated by a turbo generating pressure from the throttle opening on acceleration or held at constant speed

Can you describe what you mean by "flat spot"? Do you mean that there is par of the rev range where there seems to be little power? Turbo engines tend to produce bursts of power when the turbo spools up. Does the "flat spot" happen at low revs? If so, your turbo isn't spooled up yet. As you accelerate and it fires up you feel a rush of power. just a guess, provide more details and we'll try to help

My renault megane diesel had a humbing noise coming from the motor, then a lot of smoke appeared


check your turbo again. also check whether the waste gate valve is working by testing it with vacuum tester.Or check if any flex hose on turbo or inlet manifold has not cracked or sheared and cause a leak and that is why you might have low power with lots of smoke.
