Lack of power and engine management light on. Suspect fault due to variable valve timing (VVT) sticking.
The fault was cured by removing and cleaning the VVT solenoids and carrying out a 45 minute Forté New Generation Engine Flush adding Forté Top End Treatment to the new oil and Forté Advanced Formula Gas Treatment to the fuel tank.
With thanks to David at Lockwood & Greenwood in Aston-Under-Lyne, Lancashire.
Forté's Technical Helpline receives over 300 calls per month. This blog shares solutions for garage workshops on common driveability concerns that can be quickly and effectively treated. The vast majority of those identified are caused by fuel and oil borne contamination formed by natural degradation or via the combustion process. This is a fact of life for internal combustion engines where fossil fuels and oils are used.
