I have done a little bit of google-ing on this and it does appear to be a common issue. I've seen it referred to 'limp home mode' but no one seems to offer a solution. I've read about plenty of people spending hundreds or more trying to solve the issue but failing. I don't want to be one of these people.
I've taken it to get a diag and the guy said there were 13 faults which he apparently fixed but I have seen no improvement. He said he also 'reset' my car computer. My mechanic told me he wants to clean out the oil filter and sensor first and if that doesn't help then replace it.
Ive has this issue ever since I bought the car second hand about a year ago so it's probably had this issue for a lot longer than that.
To date, I have spent about $700AU trying to fix this. I would rather not spend any more if there is no solution. I had the fuel pump replaced, the diag/repair and a general service / look over.
Please help me!
have the same problem?
