Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi I'm Kevin this is the type of fault that puts car into what's know as limp home mode .it basically means the car isn't happy with a reading from a sensor somewhere on engine it could be anything from egr fault to bad can sensor . The only way to know for sure the cause is to have car plugged into fault code reader and faults read from car .i guess it's just a bad sensor somewhere as car runs fine until car sees fault again .
Egr is exhaust gas recirculating valve and cam shaft position sensor I gave these as examples without codes I wouldn't want to guess and mislead you as to cost because it could literally be anything causing if you come back to me with fault codes il give you likely cause and cost
I would say with the severe power loss your experiencing it is urgent
