Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Lately my car looses a lot of power when accelerating, you can feel the
engine struggles to produce the needed power, on high speed the car drives
better and the car idles fine but as soon as i accelerate it has no power or it
stutters from the car loosing power, any advice would be appreciated :)

please not that the enigne light also does not come on when it looses power


Possible catalytic converter in the exhaust may be plugged, have that checked out at an exhaust shop.

It makes sense thanks! I did some research on it and its said that the check engine light will usually come on and a code will pop up on diagnostics, the car was on diagnostics but they didnt pick anything up, is that possible?


Yes it is possible, also some exhaust system have this air valve in the exhaust, like 2001 Pontiac's have one, may just want to get the exhaust checked. Not to say there something going on with the engine, It would be a good idea to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes also. It's hard to say for sure on this without looking at it. I can only direct you on what to start checking until a problem is found.
