Hi Tony,


Best bet is to retrain the car. Disconnect the battery, give it a half hour, then reconnect. Drive the car how you will for the rest of eternity and let it relearn. Also worth doing a service before this. I replaced air filter, oil filter and oil and got a substantial improvement, and that was before I retrained the car.
