Kangaroo Ka

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

A friend has a Ka, 2004 I think, not sure of engine size, she's complaining that it keeps kangarooing when accelerating, it doesnt do it all the time, it sounds like a fuel problem, but I am unsure, any ideas? I have heard of VW's having a similar issue caused by the coil pack,

On further investigation, it's from 2004, the engine light is on, its low on oil and coolent and it also looks like the oil filter needs changing! The idle is a bit lumpy, similar to a big CI supercharged dragster engine I once heard, and when driving along it feels as though something is catching and pulling the revs down, regardless of how much throttle is applied!
