Losing all power!

Post by SimonTappenden »

I took my red car for a new hood today, it was smoking a bit before I left (oil rings) but by the time I had done 200 miles it had stopped... on the return trip it started to lose power, by the time I got home it was hopeless...

No oil burn, all levels check out but no power at all, I will do a compression test tomorrow but with no oil burn it seems unlikely there is an issue there.

Does anyone have any ideas?
