Question Asked: Engine has low power, and does not accelerate
June 16, 2012, 05:52 PM
Engine has low power, and does not accelerate. Hesitates at times. Engine light is on. Sometimes engine stops running when slowing down or stopping on intersections. Sometimes it would run but RPM is steady at 1,000 to 2,000 RPM's and at 10-20 miles per hour speed, until you restart the engine and it would run normal again for some time.
MAF is cleaned, but not difference.
