Hi there. Typically when an engine "bogs down", it is caused by a fuel or air restriction issue. Common components that can cause this are mass air flow sensors, MAP sensor, EGR valve, fuel injectors being dirty or clogged or even a dirty throttle body. There are many possible sources, so it’s a good idea to have one of our professional mobile mechanics come to your location and complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection to pinpoint the source of this problem and recommend the right repairs.
