  4. Loss Of Power In 2Nd

    Hi, I have a manual 1999 Is200 SE and have had a few incidents this week when climbing hills...............when i drop the car into 2nd it feels as if the pedal has been pushed to the floor, the engine revvs its nuts off but there is no power at all? I have to knock it out of gear pull over then everything seems to be ok after that and carry the journey on as normal. Has anyone else had a similar problem or can help?????? this has happened 3 times but is very intermittent would like to know source of the problem before i approach a mechanic or throw endless pots of money at it.
