My car is alot slower now?
I have got MK3 Volkswagen Golf 1.8i SE 90bhp, I haven’t driven it since November and I normally can get to 120mph no problem at all. Now my car is struggling getting to 70mph.
When I put my foot on gas I can feel the engine’s power goes on and off felt like I’m lifting the petal off and putting it back on but I wasn’t.
Any idea what is wrong with it? I have checked air filter and air intake its all perfect and have replaced Intermidiate flange which was damaged but its still the same. It has got injection.
Its annoying for me as it cost me alot money for fuel as I had to put my foot down most of the time and using up fuel.
p.s there is possible that someone has been playing with my car as it was in the garage for respray and the job was poor.
And it doest response well when I press the pedal
Thank you for ya’ll answers and I will try and fix the problems of what ya’ll reckon it was.
Will update once I have found the answer
One more symptom I do have black smoke coming out of my exhaust too even after I drove after couple of hundred miles
