Well, put a fuel filter on it and it does the same thing. When putting a load on the car it does not seem to down shift unless you back off the pedal. Thought it might be a slipping transmission so I went to a honest local transmission place. They scanned it for codes and could not find any transmission codes. They went for a ride with me and watched the computer scanner while I drove it and made it act up. Again no codes to be found. He mentioned it seemed like maybe it was plugged converter as it seem to act a bit that way( would not a plugged converter set of a check engine light?). When we got back he checked the engine for any stored codes and found five:
p0402- excessive EGR flow detected
p0300 Engine misfire detected
p302 cylinder 2 misfire detected
p304 cylinder 4 misfire detected
p306 cylinder 6 misfire detected
No check engine light are on in the car even though it is now acting up. Any ideas?
Would you take it in and get an engine scan?
Would you wait for the cars drive cycle to see if the check engine light comes on again after it was cleared?
