Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a holden captiva 2011. The engine light came on. And also the traction light comes on and off and abs light. But they go off if you turn car off. But today when I accelerating it was like nothing happened. then I took my foot off and put it on again and then it worked. This continued. Its like there is no power to the accelerator. I have had non stop problems since I brought this car. Have already cleaned all the diesel fuel line about 2 years ago as well as cleaned filters and fuel injectors a few times. Not sure what to do? When the other lights came on before now, my mechanic said it was probably sensors because lights coming on and off, but am not worried about the acceleration thin. Not sure if I explained myself?.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It fluctuates. usually worse when you turn the car on. seemed almost intermitent

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Captiva yourself? What have you tried so far?

This problem just started recently. I have had mechanic look at the lights before he said it was sensor nothing wrong with anything

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have changed diesel fuel line last year, and fuel injectors and filters and I get car serviced every 5000

Hello! My name is Gary.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.

Can you get a scan for codes please?

There are a few issues with Captiva, and mainly only dealer techs know how to fix them.

If you can get me the engine light code, I can help you further.
