Thank you for your reply, unfortunately due to work commitments I can't do the checks you mention until middle of the coming week. I did change the fuel pump (which incorporates the filter) for a used one but given the fault is still exactly the same I have discounted that. I will check the things you have mentioned and get back to you. This is a pig of a problem as its only when you ask the car for some serious effort that it rears its ugly head! The engine completely dies until you take your foot off the throttle and just chug around in it. Regards Lou
did the lighter gas on the hoses etc but there was no response at all. Is it at all possible that this an electrical problem rather than fuel shortage such as the coil pack or other? Lou
ok will do that, thanks
I have carried out all the suggestions you put forward and they are all ok. I disconnected what I believe is called the MAP censor and it made no difference to the car at all even when I accelerated hard it was the same as before ie stalling. I unplugged it on idle and there was no change in the engine speed. I got this car up to 90mph and it only shows the problem if you try to rush it by literally flooring the throttle and then it really misbehaves. Thanks for your help Mat, I will do the rating on your reply. Lou
