Re: 156 1.8 Power Loss
It could be a lot of different things. head gasket ok? whats the oil look like? and the water? are all the sensors working for the ecu? Are all 3 cats ok or is one of them decomposing? what about the injectors are they all working ok? bent, stuck valve? Blocked air intake? All the coils working? Broken ignition lead? Oh is the alternator ok - if the bearings have gone it would put a big load on the engine but it would sound different.
Had a phonic wheel shift on my 159 which showed up as a lambda problem but wasn't. Ended up sounding like a tractor though (ECU cannot tell what phase the camshaft is in). Whats the engines compression like?
I can't think of anything else!
