Tarago lack of Power


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

i probably won't get any replies but here's hoping.

i have a 92 4cyl petrol Tarago and don't have a great knowledge of them.

when I bought it I thought it was just a little bit flat but recently I have found it to have lack of power.

it idles great and revs up fine until you drive it. I have to just feather the acelarator peddle and slowly build up speed. If I press it any harder ( about quarter of the way ) the engine suddenly splutters and misses and dies.

it feels like fuel starvation or the timing is not advancing correctly.

i have changed the fuel filter and spark plugs.

i tested the fuel pump and it seems ok.

i also tested the air flow monitor and it seems to work ok.

it feels more of a fuel related problem than an electrical fault and doesn't bring on the engine management light on.

has anyone else experienced similar problems.
