A few weeks ago my car that is a LW2 started losing acceleration for no reason. When this would happen l had to pull over and turn the car off sit for roughly five minutes and then the car would drive fine. This problem only progressed and got worse over time with the service light and check engine soon light both coming on. I would find l could drive either five miles or five feet and l would lose acceleration. My mechanic said he could not find any reason for this as no codes would show up, but that he researched the problem and all he was told is it was the ECM was bad and needed replacing. I was finally able to locate an ECM but now he says it will cost hundreds to get it celebrated.
I am not experienced in cars so does this sound right? If so, what is involved in getting the ECM celebrated to my car? I reside in Las Vegas and know nobody reliable here so any help would be appreciated.
have the same problem?
