terrano w reg 2000 loosing power on hills engine running ok but cant maintain any power it stopped last night at bottom of hill where i have left it. just been and got it now running ok came up hill as normal so looks like it happens when hot it did it a few days ago and has run ok since, till yesterday both occasions i had traveled about 5 miles and suddenly lost power on a hill
no I have not found cause of problem though car is running ok at the moment so I would like an answer if possible incase it reaccures
Thanks for your reply obviously it is difficult to diagnose. at the moment it is running fine, if the fault recurs is there any checks i can make to prove valve faulty or is it a case of change it and see
my terrano has started doing it again i suspect you diagnosis is correct i took it to garage the tester said low pressure turbo they changed a pipe from intercooler but still the same it seems to occur if you are late changing down gear on a hill or if i come out of a corner in to high a gear if i turn engine off and restart it runs fine.any new ideas or do you think original diagnosis is likely to be correct
Yes probably so, the pipe they changed might have been from a boost leak that was detected. As long as your still building boost pressure and teh symptoms remain then I think our first guess is likely here.
