    It's often the MAF sensor (see other thread).

    Hi just in case anyone has a similar problem it wasnt the airflow meter?

    When i had taken the pipes off everything inc the inlet manifold was really crudded up a pain to get off but once cleaned is 100% better.

    Sounds like injection pump. Would need to really see and experience the fault to be 100%, but the way you have descibed it, and my experience leads me to suspect the pump.

    Is it running too rich? Should clean itself if you give it a good blast every now and again.

    Are you running a remap/ chip/ tuning box?
