Hey there, wanted to check and see if you still needed help.
From your description it seems all your problems occur under load correct? ligth acceleration and cruising operation seems to be fine?
The engine warning light comes on. Then if you accelerate hard, instead of going faster the engine fades and you loose power and speed. If you then take your foot off the accelerator the engine picks up again and you can continue with a light pressure on the accelerator. I have found however if you stop and rest the car for 5 minutes, and then start again without applying hard acceleration, the warning light does not come on and you can proceed at a moderate speed. However if you come to a steep hill, where extra accelerator pressure is needed, there is a danger
that you will loose all power.
What does "re-open this question" mean ? Are you going to do more research, as at the moment I am no nearer an answer ? Its a real problem with these modern cars !
