    sudden jolt of power??

    This was really weird never really took my car that far but today i did a 50 mile jurny (yes i class that as far).

    About half way there on a moterway averaging about 70mph i heard a pop and my car suddently started accelerating had to ease off the peddel quite a bit to get it at a stedy 70mph again (it fell like id floored it).

    Then a few mile later i was stuck in trafic and i mean crawling 800yrds took me 40 mins of which 20-30 mins in, my engine cut out of its own accord. It started up strate away and continued driving fine????

    cars driving fine idling fine this just seems odd and i was wondering if anyone could shed some light or have experianced these sort of things?

    X18XE1 is my engine btw.

    EGR valve...at a guess, given mine did something almost identical when the EGR was on the way out.
