The transmission would need to be checked to see if it is starting in first gear and shifting up through the gears. You should also make sure the ignition timing is set correctly. Your transmission may be starting in second or third gear. If this is the case it would cause a reduction of power. If you need some help with these checks, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can diagnose your car’s loss of power firsthand for an accurate repair.
