Hi, had a recent issue with a dead battery. That's fixed now, but the car has developed another fault which I think is unrelated?
When I accelerate hard in 1st or 2nd, the power drops away rapidly. Earlier than it usually does, And it feels like its generally lacking a bit of power. (I've already had the blanking plate done etc)
At one point I'm pretty sure the engine switched off (stalled I suppose) as I was pulling away hard, I couldn't wait long enough to confirm it had stalled so I just cycled the ignition and carried on driving.
Also at another time on the motorway, I gave it some welly, and was in 6th gear at 90mph, (just treying to understand the symtoms), and power dropped a little and the coil light started flashing. This went away the next time I started the car (which happened to be the stall just above).
I guess I should get the fault read but it's intemittent and goes away when the ignition is switched off.
Anyone recognise these symtoms?
I can drive the car sensibly and it seems OK apart for when I try to accelerate hard (and sometimes thats useful)
