A bit of a long shot, but just thought I'd ask here in case anyone is a mechanic or knowledgeable about cars in general. First off, the car has had diagnostics run on it a few weeks back. The garage concluded they didn't know the exact fault code, that to find the issue could mean checking through multiple sensors and the like, and end up costing a lot of money. When we said the car was burning fuel, they said it might be what they thought it was and quoted a price of about £70. However, because they was only going on a hunch I left it as I do not have the money to take it back again should what they did not fix the problem. Fast forward to now & the car is stuttering when trying to accelerate away, kind of like a misfire maybe? it also seems to have lost power and drops quite a bit of speed going up hills etc where as before it would easily maintain speed. I just took the dogs out and found it very sluggish and it was a bit jumpy just driving to the end of the village & back. The EML is on too and has been for about 6 weeks now since this all began. I understand it needs seeing too, but I have to unfortunately wait until next payday now at the end of the month. Anyone got any ideas maybe?
