hey guys. i hav a 1.7dti estae 2001.
this is not just of a morning when it is cold.
i get in the car, switch on the engine starts fine first time.
driving down the road, take a long time to get to 70 on motor way. i can put my foot to the floor and nothing happens it just sloly works its way up in revs and speed.
but all of a sudden ( not turbo ) i get a big pull and the car comes alive. this could be at 3k 4k 2k revs whenever it decides. if i pull upto lights when it has done this it takes over rather fast and reliably. then i switch key of when i have done my journey and bang she is back to her same old very slow self when i start her again. i think and hop i have explained it the best i can. any ideas whyat this is. could it be blocked filters or anything or does it need a service please help
