    Help please Sudden Lack of Power

    While driving yesterday at a steady 80mph I felt a pulse/miss now the engine appears to be in limp mode. There was are still are no engine lights up in the display the engine is a Z13DTH, car drives fine just wouldn't pull much above 2.5rpm and has no power up any sort of incline.

    I've tried a pedal test brake/throttle/position 2 with the key but I'm haing trouble reading the codes thats an issue with me not the car lol.

    I've driven it this moring and it's fine but I'd like to find out what casued it as no doubt it will return.

    The Thanks in advance.

    Who knows maybe the EML bulb is blown so you don't see it at all. Might be worth paying to have dignostics done (or buy yourself an Op-Com or similar unit). Maybe there are fault codes to indicate what is going on. Faulty sensor or whatever...
