I think my car is losing power to 1 cylinder.
'99 Mazda 323 Protege.
Manual, fuel-injected, 4cyl.
Engine code: CE04D16
ok so just recently started having troubles with the car. It ran fine then all of a sudden I lost what felt like 15-25% power, and the engine felt like it was shaking a little.
When revving, then engine would shudder. Idle rev went from just over 1000 to around 500. there was very little pickup when increasing speed. I can only assume it lost a cylinder. Now for the last couple days it has been jumping backwards and forwards, from regular to slow.
What is the problem, can I fix this myself, or do I need to take it to a mechanic?
Is this a good question?
