Q: Q: Loss of power while driving

asked by on

My car has no power when driving it.

Hello! There are a few components that will cause a lack of power. The leading one being that the transmission fluid may need exchanging. However, power loss may also come from a lack of fuel, air, or incorrect ignition timing. I would recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle and diagnose your vehicle’s loss of power in person to see what is exactly is causing the problem.
