Weird one this. It's seemingly been low on power, but I put that down to the car is running on base map as the lambda is dead, so it's unplugged.

Now I've just had a nightmare of a journey back home. First the car randomly cuts out ingear, try bumping, nothing, pulled over, baffled, wouldn't start. Fuel pump wouldn't prime, had a quick look and the inertia had unwedged itelf, landed on the exhaust mani and melted together so I couldn't reset it, managed to bridge it and all was well.

Then when leaving my grans it started coughing and dying when trying to set off, dip the clutch, rev and come off the bite and I got going but the power kept coming in and out, loads of backfiring, then I get going and it starts again, power cutting in and out.

Now I've nured it home but I've noticied, as soon as I press the accelerator pedal, the power cuts instantly and then comes back in and revs, but misses at various points through the rev range and is gutless. Car seemed take ages to warm up too.

Suggestions? Coilpack or MAP? I'm p*ssed off with it to say the least

check that your temprary repair to the inertia switch is still making a good connection and that nothing else in that area has melted.

Unplug TPS see if it makes any difference.

Just unplugged the TPS. Revs dropped a little and if I give it any throttleit just dies. So the TPS must be doing something, but I guess it being a sensor not a switch it COULD have a problem.

I'm thinking about MAP or coilpacks but I don't know. Highly annoying. If I unplug the MAP it runs a lot worse so Dunno

How much hassle can a CTS cause?

Right, coilpacks. I know in theory, they should either work, or not work. But can they be intermitant? When they start to break down?

Coolant remp sensor caused me a headache when i had mine, Well not so much of a headache an almost in tears moment on the way to work, When it cut out and i thought the belt had gone Sad

It would fire up and sound like a boxxer engine if it was left to cool a bit, run like shite and miss throughout the revs. Feeling a bit p*ssed off i popped the bonnet and had a look round and i'd left it disconnected.

Doh

Coil packs generally play up when the engine is hot

Yeah it seems pretty pokey when cool, but as it warms up it get's worse.

Must admit, today, heat hasn't caused the problem I don't think. All the other symptoms point to that though. I'll replace them, the CTS and TPS and see where I am, then I guess it's MAP time...

Don't think it's anything serious, far too intermitant
