unplug your lambda sensor. (the plug connector is above the radiator and below the front crossmember)

 

If the problem stops, change the Lambda.

 

you can run the car for the short term without but its now advisable to go longer than 2 weeks before fitting a newun and plugging it back in.

Does a blown exhaust = power lose?

 

I have a blown exhaust big time, AND I only have a 1.4, I want to keep all the power it has left!!

 

 

Liam yours is a 1.4 pte engine

 

a blowing exhaust on a 1.4 is less likely to cause a power loss than a slight headwind.......or a minor incline (like a pebble)

Lambda sensor isn't used at full throttle so is nothing to do with power problems.

 

 

I'd get someone to plug in and check if there are any error codes before doing anything else.

 

 

ok Stu, think that might be a good idea , was just hoping i could sort it with out getting anyone out, time to give in , its doing mi head in.. cheers Daz
