bhai mere. i have a honda city 04 and have the same problem as you.
One additinal detail, when i press the race the car takes a while to pick up. i.e. the race is sluggish in second gear .
I have a feeling it may have somethign to do with our advancer. a year ago, my car was having teh same issue and a mechanic told me taht due to my advancer, one of my engine chambers was not working at all. he repaired my advancer and the car got all its power back instantly.
i am planning to change my advancer in a day or 2. i will let you know if it solves the problem. if you get a solution before that, i will be highly obliged if you share it with me .
Also, can anyone here tell me how much a good advancer would cost?
and if its easily replaceable?
