Q: power loss

asked by on

car feels jittery when accelerating

My car has 33000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there:

Sometimes power loss issues like you’re describing on your 2011 Chevrolet Cruze are caused by dirty or damaged fuel related or emissions sensors, like the mass air flow sensor, O2 sensors or even the EGR system. However, with a turbo it’s difficult to diagnose without having an onsite inspection; so you might want to have one of our professional mobile mechanics complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection.
