    It's since the hybrid that it's played up was fine running phaze 2.

    I doubt its teh AFM as that was replaced the other month an it's seriously pop an gettin alot of backpressure.

    It sounds like a piston has melted an so looks like a new engine gonna ave to go in.

    Car is up for sale now though want £10k once the new engine is in if you know any1 that would like it
