2007 Legacy losing power

Hi,

before I start, I know very little about engines so don't be too hard on me.

I have a 2007 2L Legacy which occassionally loses power around 2500 revs (varies). When it happens, I would not get anywhere unless I change down and keep the revs over 3000. From months of testing, this seems to be the trend...


the power loss is worst when:
1) I put the foot down first thing in the morning
2) going up a steep hill
3) tank running low on petrol (when range is below 150km)


It seems okay when:
1) I am gentle with the acceleration.
2) If I don't put the foot down first thing in the morning and let the car warm up, I can be more agressive with the acceleration without problems.

Any thoughts what it could be?

Thanks,

Aidan (Cork, Ireland).

Re: 2007 Legacy losing power

could be plug related or a sensor is on it's way out or gone..best bet is to get it plugged in at a mainstealer or specialist and see whats really going on..
