    Hi All,

    I was driving on the dual carriageway at 40mph (after 10mins of driving), all of a sudden there is a huge power loss, CEL comes on and the car stalled when coming to a halt. There is no a tapping sound coming from the engine when starting up, i have left it off and waiting for the rac.

    Can anyone advise?

    Thanks,

    Sounds like a boost pipe has come off/split.

    If its a coil pack the rattle with be the gearbox.
    I would wait for assistance ,
    If its a boost pipe thats come off, un plug the MAF and see if any better
