This down to our Mr Wrinx the Jinx, we have all been experiencing problems with our 155's recently. :(

You must have been nice to him. :eek: :eek:

Or his magic is wearing off.:) :)

Penfold, just to scare you......
....my car was doing the same. It's sorted itself and has behaved for about 5 days now. Just the occasional flutter like it's thinking about doing it again :eek:
A couple of people I've spoken to on this forum and outside have hinted towards the fuel pressure regulator for my particular fault. Just something to think about if it keeps re-occuring.

Sorry, hope I'm just scare mongering...........

I was £60 for an FSE adjustable one.
It still hasn't arrived after a week and my car was really fooling around this evening. Nearly cutting out and everything. When I got home I could smell the petrol odour from the car idling too rich.

I'm sure my regulator is stuck at near maximum pressure.

I've just got 360 miles out of a tank of petrol doing my usual abuse of the car :rolleyes: I normally get about 290 - 300 :confused:
If only it would idle properly and not struggle above 5500rpm I'd be laughing..................
