    ok cheers, any advice what the bogging down could be? to much/little fuel gettin through? plus the light on dash looks like a pump symbol comes on now and again but nothing seems to be affected when it comes on?

    Thats your Engine Management light! That would be the reason why it judders and loses power! When the light is on the car is in 'limp mode'!

    I sorted a problem like this last night for a mate, it turned out to be a few plugs that needed a good clean!
