Re: no power after 4 k

its in limp mode, get it to a specialist to get it looked at.

Basicly ecu has detected a fault and dropped it into limp mode to protect the engine, drive it as little as possible untill its looked at.

As far as why coul be any number of reasons, from bad batch of fuel, to a blown sensor etc etc
