starts-up fine, Smells really bad of the cat at the backbox and smells very very rich from exhaust too. Doesnt run as good, doesnt pull as good through the gears or top-end. Absolutely DRINKS petrol and the Spark Plugs are very very BLACK & SOOTY. Oh.. and u get to about 2700rpm in 5th gear and it jerks like f**k and i mean jerks the whole car back and forth. Oh yer, by the way, its an x14xe !! lol. Any suggestions then they would be greatly appreciated guys and gals.

The plugs might be black for another reason other than over-fuelling, it can just be a sign of poor combustion rather than running rich. how old are the plugs and leads?

2 things maybe worth checking i would still have a look at the cat to rule it out give a hit with your hand when cold see if it rattles around i had this one of my other car similar symptoms

the other thing is does the ecu light actually work? maybe find someone local to yourself with the same engine and borrow the sensors off of it see itf that helps

the only other thing i have ever heard of was the end of an injector falling apart but dont hold me to it

hope this helps a bit dude
