Ford Figo 2010 Petrol Model in India.Engine issue

Dec 29, 2019 8:20AM PST

I have a Ford Figo petrol 2010 model in india. I am facing an acute problem since 6 months. While the car is running normally at times the engine diagnostic light in the dashboard glows and the car speed doesn't increase beyond 20kmph It happens as if the power output has reduced to half.
But after restarting the car the symbol disappears and the car runs normally.This issue occurs frequently with no set pattern or condition of running

Loss of power

Hi; If your vehicle has a catalytic converter, it could be the source of your problem. Catalytic converters (and rarely, mufflers) can break up inside and plug off the exhaust. When that happens, you'll experience the severe loss of power. When you stop or turn off the engine, the plug may fall away and then be 'fine' again. This can be checked with a pressure gauge attached to the upper oxygen sensor fitting.

Thank you for your suggestion. I will have to check this issue with the mechanic.
Just one thing to add in my above problem.At low vehicle speeds and during 2nd and 3 rd gear this issue is more prevalent.
Usually at high speeds i.e. at 4 th and 5 th gear the issue of power loss or low power output is not observed.
