147 loss of power!!


on my way to work tonight I was sat waiting at some lights, when they turned to green i pressed the throttle, the car set off as normal but then within a second or so the engine just seemed to die!! it only lasted another second or so then it picked back up again as i'd backed off the throttle!! I was in 1st gear at the time!! Then as i'm carrying on up the road very shortly afterwards it did it again in another gear but again, was only for a split second!! this time i was in 3rd!!

anybody any ideas? i had a Bravo 1.8 HLX years ago that did this within a day of my buying it!! Luckily i'd bought it from a dealership so took it back. Was the ECU at fault so they replaced it FOC!!

Other cars i've had over the years that have had similar probs have had dodgy distributers, coils etc!!
