My car is having trouble accelerating.
My car has 10200 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
The first thing to check for in any drivability problem is air leaks. Any air that gets into the engine without passing through the air mass meter and being measured will lean out the system and cause problems. Look at all the rubber hoses and boots under the hood to be sure they are well connected and in good condition. If the check engine light is not on, it probably should be. Turn the key on without starting the engine, the CEL should be on. This is a bulb check feature. If the stays on after starting it means there are trouble codes stored that can help in the diagnosis. These can be read by a technician with the appropriate scan tool. There are a number of things that could be causing your problem and from this desk, I’m afraid I can’t narrow it down any more. If you contact YourMechanic you can have a technician come out to your home or office to check out your poor acceleration and let you know what is the solution.
