Went out in the car today, put foot down and the car was missing, popping, and total lack of power. You cant take it about 2000rpm and when you put your foot flat to the floor it does it straight away, and car only does about 60mph. Engine is x20xev (in a corsa b)
many thanks mike
need help asap please
