09 Forester 2.5 Premium loosing power
Has anyone experienced temporarily loss of power when overtaking? My 09 seems to loss power for about a second when I overtake and when it comes back engine is in very high rev and very slow to respond and I end up not overtaking. This started around 10K(now at 33K) and has happened 5 times intermittently and a bit scary because it feels like the engine has died.
I have also experienced this when I drive to our local supermarket. The entrance to the parking lot has probably a 5 degree incline and as soon as I am halfway, engine losses power for 1-2 seconds and has a hard time going in.
I have taken the car to the local dealer and they said they could not replicate or find the problem.
Any suggestions? This is a bit concerning because I have a 5 year old passenger and I don't want to get in to an accident.
