Lost power, need help.
Car: 155 2.0 8v from 1992
Yesterday I drove some 300km journey and the car worked well for the first 200km.
Then I had a 30min pause, and for some reason the car had lost power during the pause.
It's like driving a 1.0 Ford Fiesta. Getting to motorway speed is verry sluggish!
Didn't notice anything odd during the pause or when starting her up.
Had a little erratic idle, but when reving while stationary, the engine seems normally responsive.
When I got home, I checked the oil which was a little below the minimum (last check was 2 weeks ago when it was on mid-way the dip stick min/max markers. Added oil.
Today I changed the sparkplugs, and the idling seems a lot better, but still no power.
Air filter is DIRTY, but that wouldn't cause an IMIDIATE lose of power like this, as the car worked 100% perfectly before the 30min pause!
Any ideas anyone?
