Has anyone any suggestions.
My bug is back firing and missing when I put it under a load....... thought it was a fuel problem, so drained the tank, filled it up with fresh and it is still doing it, will run fine for a couple of minutes then looses the plot, it is fine when idling.... help!

this has been said before and will be said time and time again

do not take you car to cardiff classic - hes a thieving bastard!

NG Motors are meant to be alright but ive heard bad things about these also but ive heard less bad things about them than cardiff classic

im sure shaven one will pop up soon to advise you go to celtic soul - ive no personal experience with these guys but they sound like a good bunch Smile
