Sounds to be a loose or corroded wire/s at either starter motor or at battery fusible links.
Also check the earth strap (Cable) between engine and bodywork.
Hope this helps, MMP

Testimonial: "Brilliant thanks for your help its much appreciated. I will check it out and post the outcome. thanks "
Crank sensor or engine speed sensor is faulty.
Irregular power loss on accelerating
The speed of the engine is limited till 2500rpm
Frequent loss of crankshaft position sensor signal
It is caused due to leaking from thermostat housing into crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug
Check and clean the crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug contacts. Rectify the engine coolant leak from the thermostat housing if found. Take a note of the engine coolant level and monitor it for changes, showing a leak is indeed occurring.

We had a similar problem our RX4 1.9DCI and it was the EGR valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) the valve fails and sticks open so the inlet and exhaust manifolds have an open path. The AA did a tempory fix on our car by taking it out (it sits in the top of the inlet manifold held in by 2 or 3 small bols) and then just turning it around 180 degrees and bolting it back in place. this means the gas cannot pass through the port in the valve. Interestingly our car was only a few months old and when the temporary fix was done the power went up quite a lot and also the MPG.
