erratic power loss Posted by TimN [Email] (#2379) [Profile/Gallery] (more from TimN) on Sun, 25 Nov 2012 18:13:49 Members do not see ads below this line. - Help Keep This Site Online - Signup
My daughter has the 9-5 (2000, manual, 133K miles with a new turbo 15K ago. ) at college. When we met at Thanksgiving with the family in the Texas Hill country, she said the car tried to loose power on her a few times. I drove it but the 9-5 ran fine, even on a steep incline. After she left, she said that once warm on hills it lost power. On the flats and downhill she couldn't tell anything different. So when it lost power she gunned it, and then it drove okay enough to get he home. My first thought was that there is no compression. But I don't know why it would be sporadic. Next maybe bad gas. It's not the AC compressor dragging. No smoke from the exhaust either. So I'm not sure if this is a throttle body issue or something simple like vacuum line. Since I live in New Mexico there's not much I can do other than report it to the mechanic.
