    Kangaroo

    I'm posting on behalf of a friend.

    When he is driving along at low revs in any gear the car has a slight kagaroo effect?

    does/has anyone had any problems like this or know of the problem?

    The car is a V reg 1.8 16v sport which has done 55K

    I think mine does this a bit, mainly in 2nd or 3rd... 1-2000 rpm and only a touch on the throttle. T Reg 1.8 sport 3dr, 22k.

    Thought of using the petrol additives... so will post on that.

    Well, put in a whole bottle of the one that comes in a grey/silver bottle - STP I think, on a full tank (inc. 3/4 optimax) and will see what happens when it's all run through.

    Apparently needs a good go on the Motorway, so here's to 250 miles!

    Laters...

    (Who said it was a feature...???)

    The problem has been fixed now. Turned out to be a dodgy
    air flow sensor. Good o'l Tech2!
