A fault like this is very dangerous and needs looking at immediately to avoid an accident.

There is obviously a serious error occurring.

It may be something as simple as the throttle position sensor though.

Changed the TPS,still the same.No management light on,so no clue as to why it is doing this.

Does it stall or start juddering etc? Does it only happen after a cold start up?

Stef,it doesn't judder or stall,it's just like there is no power for 20 seconds and then all of a sudden it will just take off.But that 20 seconds is scary as you're stuck in the middle of the road with no chance of movement,it seems to be just from cold.

So does this happen regularly or just intermittent?

It could be worth getting someone with a live data scanner to have a look at it

You wouldn't happen to know anyone with one?
