Hi everyone, My Brthers Coupe is being a real pig. It will run fine from a to b, but then when you get back in the car and drive it again it will:

1. Ideal fast

2. Cut when you release the Clutch

3. Lack power

4. Cut and be a pig to restart.

5. Misfire when driving in traffic at about 25 - 35 mph

Next day will drive fine again. Local garages have tonked with a new throttle pot, and cleaned various bits. It runs for a week or two, and then back to its old tricks.
To me it seems like a metering problem when hot, but only after a slight cool down and restart does this happen. On a long constant run its fine. Forward of the driverside strut (under the bonnet) is a small aluminium can which can be heard to make a loud clicking sound (like an arking) but this does do this even when the car is running normally.

Can anyone help

Best regards Mike

Have you had the injectors checked, had mine replaced recently and it works so much better, have more power at lower revs too.

Was told by the garage that after about 100,000 miles its usual to change them
