Frontera cutting out.

Postby jennie bateman on Thu Dec 12, 2019 1:28 pm

Hello. I have a 1998 frontera a 2.2 petrol and today it has started losing power whilst driving. The engine warning light came on and it cut out. Up to now it has restarted every time. Does anyone have any ideas what it might be?
Thank you.

If it puts the warning light on get the codes read better than guessing.

Yes get the codes done, if the eml was on it will have them stored. More than likely a sensor issue.
Someone mention laning? Just tell me when and where!
