EF Fairmont Labouring Whilst Driving!!??
Long time reader, first time poster. Just wondering if any of you may have any idea what the hell is wrong with my beloved EF Fairmont! I noticed for the first time the other day that during normal driving, my revs would drop significantly for a couple of seconds (and power also) then go back up to normal. Then last night, I was driving along at about 80kms per hour, with my foot about half way down on the accellerator, and all of a sudden, the car starts to shake like a bitch, power is lost completley - as if it is labouring (imagine you are in a manual and try to got 20kmph in 5th). It sort of lasts for about 10 seconds, then i kick the foot down and it goes, but can then come back again.
Is it just a bad batch of petrol, distributor leads or is my transmission or torque converter ****ed? Thanks in advance for any help you can give!!
