Acceleration problem/glitch - 166 2.0 V6 Turbo
Hi people, this is my first post where I am stating the problem that just occured this morning. Not sure, a problem or a glitch.
The acceleration is gone down-down, meaning when i press the peddle completely (1st or 2nd gear, or any other), it accelerates as if there is only 50bhp with car weighing as if a 5 ton truck. But when I turn on STR, it is back as it is supposed to be.
What I mean to say is, if before it took the car to reach 100km/h is about 8 seconds (with STR off), now it will take about 15 seconds, or maybe more. Completely confused what has gone wrong or which glitch has appeared.
Prior to this, yesterday, I added some more oil engine oil for it to be optimum (as used to do before), and then a sensor light up on the dashboard, looks like a pipet with some drops, and do not know what that is as do not have the manual, and never had it light up before. Someone can tell me what this sensor means, and perhaps is the cause of the problem/glitch.
