I have noticed lately on long drives or around town , while driving the car loses all revs and power (tacho drops back to zero) and then a sec later resarts and everything is normal again. Would this be my TFI module or something else? It happens about every 2nd day, and is becoming annoying as i was overtaking a semi when it cut out for a sec or two!
I just read it happens when you drive....so probably count the box out
does it happen when you put your foot down, or just when at cruise? I also once had this problem, but it was gone after i did my head gasket. While the head gasket wasnt the cause, i replaced a lot of stuff at the time which may have contributed
things like Replaced Fuel Filter, Dissy cap and rotor button, got timing spot on, all leads and plugs replaced, ran some injector cleaner thru it and put Premium in it for a week. Also replaced air filter, cleaned ISC, throttle body etc etc.
if the tacho drops and comes bcak in it sounds like dizzy module. workin RACV has taught me this a lot. if the auto is crook, all that will do is drop to third gear and go into limp home mode. i would get your dizzy sussed out cos when they go they really stop on ya, can't even baby them home. I paid 130 for a new dizzy in my car and the problem went away. I think its a dizzy problem.
Drive it like you stole it.....
