what is wrong when my car doesn't have power and won't go over 20-25 mph?
I had a bunch of work done and it wasn't
doing this before I took it to a shop. when I
got the car out of the shop it acted like it
didn't want to go over 20-25 mph. the shop I
went to messed something up and I need to
know what I need to get to fix it.
Is it a reputable shop? The car shouldn't have left their shop if it wasn't fixed right. That said, your car might be in limp mode - meaning the throttle control is limited if a 'throttle fault' if detected. you should have the car scanned for DTC (trouble codes) to determine what is causing it to be in limp mode (assuming it is).
I'm not sure. I spent $600+ for a crank sensor and a coil pack and when I pick the car up, the man said he test drove it and everything was fine. then as soon as I got onto the road I noticed I didn't have any power and it never acted like that before. I took it back and the guys were very rude about it and I didn't want to leave it there and spend more money on things that weren't needed. I believe that ripped me off and made me pay for stuff I didn't need and in the process of putting those parts in, they messed something up.
