    Could be though usually engine management light is normally illuminnated.

    From outside of the car (when idling or just switched off) can you smell unburn't fuel ?

    also check the 4 wires leading into each coilpack top, they can begin to melt,(as mine did), and give similar symptoms.

    Had it fixed recently.

    One coilpack had failed..

    Just a new clutch needed now [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img] and the problem with no boost now and again to sort out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img]
