Welcome to the Forum Miranda.

1) does your car idle higher than usual or has it not really changed?
2) when your car was losing power, where the revs increasing?
3) was there any additional smoke?
4) is it Petrol, or diesel?

Hopefully these questions will help us get you a few more answers!

Hi it is petrol and to be honest i didnt notice the revs a mechanic took it out and said revs still go up ! no smoke although has been at night. idles same as haas done since i got it a month ago. It stalls for first 5 mins of driving and drives very slow till it warms up then its ok till needs higher gears. its automatic .
