    Morning all,

    yesterday on the way to work (short 3 mile drive) i nearly stalled my scooby, got to end of road and 2 mins later it hesitated around 35mph when slowly accelerating then cut out and i stopped. started up no problem and then was fine for rest of journey.
    Then on the way home the same thing happened, hesitated when accelerating slowly - normal driving around 35-40mph.
    Then this morning the exact same thing, doing around 35mph stuttered then cut out, started up and fine for rest of journey.

    Anybody know what the problem is - cars been top for the last year hassle free.

    Cheers in advance for any comments

    lol fair play then buddy but seriously if you have an apexi fitted spend some time getting to know your way round they really are self diagnostic if used right

    All sorted and running bob on once again - down to a faulty Maf sensor - Big thanks to Andrew Carr at CAMS, we got there in the end.
