I've recently purchased a space star 1.9 did (2003), the car lacks power when accelerating and is really poor on hills. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Answers

I had similar problem. it was first thought to be carbon build up in the catalyser, but then moving to the air intake,the filter has an air motor on the large round pipe next to it which was changed. you can test this by disconnecting the three wire plug on the top of the pipe. ken chambers from Greater Manchester

Answers

lost of power is definitely your turbo charger nothing else, needs placement joe from Mayo

Loss of power can result from any number of faults, including turbo if fitted. If it were me, I would contact the seller, as it is likely this fault was there before it was sold! Paul from Cambridgeshire

Yellow light comes on intermittently. Cutting out on slowing down. It will restart immediately and otherwise is going as good as ever. The fault is frightfully dangerous as I have to cross a murderous two- laned by-pass to collect grandchildren. Thanks, Ann

Answers

Ann, by "the yellow lights" I assume you mean the engine management light... if this comes on your engine can (and sounds as if it IS" go into what they call limp mode where you will lose poser. There are many reasons, some simple, some complex, why this should happen and you ought to get the vehicle connected to an OBD computer to get it fault read to see what the problem is.. it could be purely electrical connection, failed sensor or the like, but it could be something potentially more serious.

Thanks R Evans. She connected to a computer last evening and possible faults are Fuel Pump Sensor or Regulator - failing these the Pump itself. One of the best Agatha Christies I read, long before the Space Star era, was "Why didn't they ask Evans" !! Ann Ann O'Sullivan from Ireland

I have a knocking noise which has just appeared when i wiggle steering, it happens when i wiggle steering left to right stationary and also when im driving, it is a single clunk each time i move it not so much when driving, i have checked power steering levels and also suspension and seems to be no issues, i believe from research it may be track rod ends or cv joints? What i am after though is can i still drive the car 70 miles to get home as i am going to part ex the car next week and don’t really want to fork out money for a car that will probably be scrapped.
