Re: ? engine intermittant loss of power

I've sealed the crack in the intercooler and fitted an other air pressure sensor, disconnected the maf sensor for a while , but the same!
noticed when it happens , if I pump the throttle the power slowly comes back :frown:

Re: ? engine intermittant loss of power

yes got some vac pipe , but only replaced short bit nr pump.
