Re: sluggish 155 16v
yeah mine's the same, it's slow off the line and i feel i'm having to drag it about these days. give it open road though and once moving above 40mph and punching through 4200rpm it goes well.
i doesn't blow smoke and oil/water is clean. i thought maybe the variator too but 3 mechanics say it's still not noisy enough for changing yet. oil pressure is over-half cold, just under-half warm
had injectors cleaned recently but not much difference. i'm getting flat spots around 2000rpm, and surges at same point when decelerating - not fun when braking.
101k miles though now so I shouldn't be expecting too much from the worn cam lobes i guess
