Owned the 6 for a good few months now, and this has happened maybe 3 or 4 times. Driving along, and suddenly lose power for a split second. Not really sure what it is - i've changed the fuel filter, topped up the coolant and it happened again yesterday.

Any ideas? Revs don't rise so I don't think it's a slippy clutch. Could this be a sign of a head gasket issue?

Cheers,

Al

Is there less power in these moments or does it cut out completely? Does it jolt?

Less power, doesn't cut out completely. No jolting either as far as I can tell. Just feels like it stops accelerating for a split second.

OK makes sense. I was thinking it could be a spark plug or something? Or am I way off base here?

Could be a coil pack if it goes to 3 cylinders
