1988 Porsche 911 Repair Question
Loss of power
This morning on my way to work my car hesitated then loss power and stopped. I waited 5 minutes and it started back up. I pressed the gas and noticed a surge of power then a little hesitation but it kept running at idle speed.
I drove the car gingerly to a mechanic shop and they have not been able to give a reason for it stopping.
Thanks - Gary
It could be a lot of things but 3 things that can be narrowed down,fuel,ignition,or mechanical.Its not likely mechanical since the engine idles.It could be lack of fuel but thats easy to check.Ignition is easy to check also.If all 3 seem to be present then check the head temp sensor.If this sensor goes open circuit then the engine runs extremely lean and is hard to keep running.
