    Default Loss of power!??

    Hi all.

    I have a vxr corsa Arctic edition (1.6 turbo). Recently I have been experiencing a noticeable reduction in power/torque.

    For example, when I took it out for a run yesterday I put my foot down, got to 5th gear and the car just didn't have the welly to take it past 5k revs (I was doing approx 120mph) and when in 6th it just didn't have the power. However, on the way back I kept the car in 6th and built up speed slower and the car went straight up to 140mph+

    Also when taking off I have noticed that the car shudders a little (when taking it easy; i.e normal urban driving; low revs) sort of like the turbo kicks in and cuts out (if u know what I mean).

    Any ideas on what I could do to eliminate this problem?

    Can't wait for the replies to this......lol

    To answer your question, do you have any fault codes? Does it feel like it's misfiring at all?

    No engine management lights, not misfiring at all.

    Maybe the car is trying to save you losing your licence / life.

    Far too many dash cams on the go these days that are successfully prosecuting people. Take it easy and be safe.

    On note of the question, does it boost fine to a certain speed or is it fully intermittent?
