Ive just bought a 52 reg 1.6 sxi and have a problem with the car kangarooing a lot in mainly in 2nd gear low revs when pulling away and my foot is gently on the accelerator, also i seem to be getting a hesitation then a boost of power from the engine like a turbo is fitted!!! when pulling away from lights/junctions etc when the engine gets to about 3000 rpm & all in all its just a jumpy bouncy kind of kangaroo ride in general & not smooth at all.
Ive done a bit of reading in the forums & seem to think it may be the EGR valve but should this be faulty or need cleaning on a 52 reg car thats done 16,000 miles?????
Any help/advise would be most grateful as im thinking of taking it back to the garage which is a network q one.
