    Hi guys,
    My 360 occasionally goes into limp mode losses over 50% of power and makes loud muffled noise. It usually goes away when I restart the engine. Are there anything I should check?
    Thx!

    System voltage, battery condition, fan belt tension driving the alternator. Sounds like loss of volts

    No warning at all. It starts normal, loud muffled exhaust tone and major power lost. It does not go away by keep driving. Engine must be restarted.

    Connect a volt meter up to the power socket in the centre consol or buy one that plugs into the power socket. See what volts when it plays up

    Maybe the car is still in the cold start procedure and you are driving too early?

    You know how hard it is to diagnose that with no video clip of it occurring or any other info? Could be any number of things affecting one bank or both. Maybe throttle failing and sticking shut..

    I did checked the operation voltage is at 14v to rule out the alternator. It has not happened again for 2 days so lets hope it's just ECU glitch.
