Car lost power/shakes but then fixed itself Sign In

Hello guys,

I have a question. Few days ago my car lost a good amount of power (wouldn't go above 50 km/h). The car was really rough and it was shaking even when idling. I have tried turning it off/on but it didnt help. After letting it sit for around 10 hours and starting it up again somehow it magically got fixed.

Could I ask what is the possible issue as to why this has happened and should I be worried?

Thanks.

Maybe really lightly for a short period of time.

Sounds like the ignition system is getting old and the moisture soaked in to cause a misfire.

Cheap tricks:
Try wetting secondarys (items with 10s of 1,000s of voltage) with salted water, the high voltage items.


See sparks or it alters the way it runs when or if you hit the suspect spot. Fix that,


Tom
