I have a Honda City 2004 and I have been experiencing a loss of power during pickup. To elaborate on this further, when I accelerate in the first gear the car show a total lack of power, regardless of the AC being turned ON or OFF.
However if I maintain my foot on the race pedal the car does actually shoots to power after a while on I guess 2000 RPM. The same happens when I am in 2nd and 3rd gear. A few of my friends and mechanic suggested that the clutch plate and pressure plate needs replacement.
The second issue in the car that I have experienced is that the car lights start fluttering very lightly when the car is switched on. This goes for both cabin lights and exterior lighting. However when I just switch on the power it does not happen, ONLY when the ignition is on.
Question from the car experts is, what are these issues and how much would it cost to get them fixed. I would also like recommendations on an expert mechanic in Karachi. I have tried a few but hopeless.
Your help will be greatly appreciated!
