Hey

Iv got a problem, which seems quite serious? I need someone to put my mind at rest or advise me.

My car has start chugging when sitting at a stand still, or when accelerating. Its struggling to accelrate and needs the peddle on the floor, but that doesnt make much difference. It feels like im driving with a heavy load in the back, but my boot is empty.

Any ideas??

Many thanks

Sounds like your idle speed control valve is loose or dirty
