Hi, I have a problem with my Elantra. There’s a loss of Pick up in my car…it rides sluggish as if carrying a Heavy load, this issue is more prominent especially when going uphill.
This problem is not persistent but keeps coming & going. Suddenly the car rides smooth & then again the problem re-surfaces. I changed the brake pads, got a new clutch & master cylinder, got the injectors cleaned, got the engine flushed & changed to synthetic oil. Still the problem persists. Though I have been having some issues with my brakes since quite some time…lately the brake pedal just depresses completely without the car braking or slowing. Could this be an issue with the brakes which is causing this loss in Pick-up/Power. Just for ur reference I read somewhere that there’s a possibility that when I press the brakes there’s some residual pressure which is not released completely even on releasing the brakes which causes to car to ride sluggishly. What do you guys think?
