Re: p1 engine problem

Did it get to a certain number of revs then just not accelerate anymore?

Re: p1 engine problem

yeah the revs were still rising but there is no issue in pulling away even when its hot? also it wasnt surging like a slipping clutch just loss of power but still revs?

i did take it to my local garage they are normally very good but they said if the engine management light didnt come on then they couldnt retrieve a code?

Re: p1 engine problem

My P1 is fine 1st to 4th, even booting in through the gears. But once in 5th it slips so we both need new clutches. Don't put a standard one back in. I'm getting an exedy one put in with a lightened flywheel as well
