Crap Acceleration

Driving home today at around 30 - 40mph when the aceleration became really pants.
I put my foot down and nothing happens for about a second then the car accelerates.

A warning light has come on looks like an injector spraying.

any ideas?

Re: Crap Acceleration

Could be AFM/lambda or simply one of the relays.

Re: Crap Acceleration

truth is there are so many things that can cause the injector light to come on (it just means "problem detected somewhere with engine management system"), the quickest and often cheapest way to sort the problem is to have a delaer plug your car into diagnostics which will highlight what the problem is.

Re: Crap Acceleration

1. defective MAF/AFM or just a build up of dirt on it that can be cleaned using carb cleaner ...NOT WD40
2. defective Lamda sensor
3. defective TDC sensor
4. broken air box, leaning to pint 1 above.
5, bad H/T leads
6. loose sparkplugs
7. knackered variator

Try searching for Alfenia, that'll return many many post with regards to lack of power
