159 No Power 2.4
Yet another problem with my 2.4 (200)
The car has been pretty juddery in low revs for the past few weeks, yesturday it started juddering whilst pulling onto a duel carriageway so I decided just to floor the accelerator which caused the car to lose power.
Since then the car appears to have completely lost power even after switching it off over night, whilst it appears to rev the speed and power delivery is not really matching what the rev counter is saying.
I know people talk about limp mode, but I am not sure if this is the same problem because you can get it up to decent speeds it just takes 40% longer in time.
I would also say the engine tone has also changed to a raspy / rattlely type noise when the revs get up.
Had it plugged into a computer and no faults have been logged, no lights on dash etc.
The other thing is of late the fuel filter has been making lots of noise from the pipe that feeds it fuel, whilst I have had this problem before (even after new pipe and filter) it has seemed worse of late making the noise pretty much constantly ..... This noise after the first loss of power completely stopped although has returned this morning.
Any others had similar problems / ideas of possible causes??
