given that it cuts out when cold, it could be a temp sensor problem


yeah i was looking on google other day and came across it could be that also. grandad is gonna wait and see if he is asked to repair anything else. as she put it into the garage to see why it was cutting out and they told her it was the lamba sensor which was replaced yesterday but didn't solve problem they also said her clutch was slipping but there is nothing wrong with it. there is a few things it can be so will need to figure out which one.

sorry just asked grandad it wasn't coil . it was the spark plugs and the leads that were changed not coil pack.

Could also be a coil pack. Mine had a similar problem when it was starting from cold it kept misfiring/occasionally stalling untill it had warms up then it was fine. Fitted the coil pack and its ran great ever since. Had to take it to the garage to find out which one it was


the coil pack was replaced about 3-4 months back when the spark plugs were done. according to the haynes manual replacing the throttle body or the accelerator pedal you need to reprogramme it is this true?

get the throttle position sensor checked


cheers mate will give it a try! saves spending £270 on a new throttle body if its just that as there only £11 on ebay :)
