December 18, 2006Hello,
my dependable 45,000 mile old (last big service in 30k) PT 2.4 developed a new reproducible (it happens on all starts from cold) problem - as if the motor would be choked. After an easy start on acceleration, the rpm go down and the car looses pull. Putting a foot off gas pedal in fact helps better than adding more gas. The problem is worse when the AC is on. Once the car passes ca. 1min, half a mile, things are behaving normal.
Also a new interesting problem, had just the 45k oil change and air filter change and now, when the ventilator is OFF and air exchange is set on recirculation, still I feel air blow in my face but only when I accelerate=push gas pedal. What can be the connection between those two things ??
