My 99 156 V6 has suddenly developed a funny issue! If you try and blip the throttle, theres a delay before anything happens. It's like it's fallen asleep.
Doesn't do it all the time, in fact never from cold or after I've left it for a while. But ten minutes into a journey and it starts. If you try and drive hard, it holds back like you're braking lightly after engaging each gear then applying the throttle.
I've taken the throttle pot off and cleaned it up. I also took the black cap off the motor mech to check all was well, and it looks new. I gave the AFM a very quick spray and wipe, but obviously very carefully but no change. It idles fine and goes fine once it's wound up. Only other sympton is that it jerks a bit when cold.
Any ideas? nothing happened leading up to this, its only just gone! It's not like I hit anything
