Feels lazy every now and then?

Post by Rickster93 » Tue Oct 30, 2018 11:19 am

Don’t know if it’s just me but every now and then my car feels lazy to pick up.

I always let the oil get up to temp before I even consider going over 2,000 rpm. Just doesn’t feel perky. Then all of a sudden after it will feel punchy again.

Don’t know if that’s in my head, but first thing that come to mind was the vanos solenoid pack?
