Hi, Thomas, I hope you are well. can you confirm if it's petrol or diesel?
Thomas, did you get my reply? is the car petrol or diesel?
ok perfect and do any warning lights come on when this happens? when was the last fuel filter replacement?
ok I would double-check because often they are overlooked and are very common to blocking up and causing exactly your issue because the fuel supply is restricted when under load so overtaking or uphill
ok, this is a good place to start.i would also recommend the car is connected to a diagnostic tool to see if the systems are detecting the issue .EGR valves are also a common cause of this type of issue
ok, so the next step is to get it connected to a diagnostic tool to see what's going on.if no faults are stored data can be viewed whilst the issue is occurring to monitor things like fuel and boost pressure to see if they are outside spec
not as part of a service but on a scan tool data can be viewed to see if the position matches the airflow inside the intake manifold .typically they fail to shut fully causing a drop in intake pressure
no most garages will have multi-vehicle tools capable of accessing this data
keep me posted and thanks for choosing justanswer
its possible yes as incorrect readings will confuse the system and again drop the intake pressure .they are not a common failure though
