lost of power

Hi all hoping someone else as had the same problem as this as it's really doing my head in.


The car is a 05 2ltdi c-max,every now and then i can set of and lose all the revs and power i need to pull over switch the ignition off and restart it and it can be fine and drive like normal.It can be ok for days and then it will start again as you can imagine can be very frustrating especially at junctions and cars behind you and can't take risks pulling out just in case it happens again on.


3 times its happened this morning on me,just losing power turn off restart and its ok.


Anyone got any idea at all what this could be,had a fault code reader on and nothing comes up at all

Since this is a Diesel car, I am not sure whether this would be applicable or not. But did you try cleaning the Intake Manifold with some chemical like Seafoam?

I have a Petrol 1.8L car and I experienced something similar when I try to pick up after being stationary at a roundabout or when joining the motorway through a slip road. The issue I had is related to the Intake Manifold which ultimately had resulted in low air flow to two of the cylinders. After replacing the Intake Manifold Runner Control (Vaccum solenoid) the car works absolutely fine now.
