so, before I send the car off into the garage I'm wondering if someone could possibly advise what the problems is with my car so I may be able to fix it myself.
A few weeks ago my car lost nearly all power on the motorway. It gave a stutter then just struggled to move away. I pulled over and restarted the engine (which started fine) but the car had no power, it felt like it was being pushed then eventually gathered speed.
I gave the car a blast in second and third for a few miles and it now drives fine but the car struggles to start. some days it may be a few turns and it fires up others it takes a while.
At no point has any warning lights come on and there are no faults codes stored either.
When the car is struggling it doesn't sound like the battery, it does keep on turning then eventually after a few coughs sparks into life.
I can't see any unwanted soot in the engine or around the swirl flaps so my immediate thought is EGR ..
