    My car has the same problem but it also has a flat spot and sometimes both combine especially when turning and going uphill at the same time.

Hi it's me rosemary2729 with a solution.
Firstly I took the car to a garage who said that they could change the plugs + air filter + fuel filter + oil etc. and if that didn't work could then try other things until they solved it. This sounded like a ticket to print money. I then decided to get a man who comes to the house and who carried out one of these diagnostic checks. He said it was the lambda sensor which is at the engine side of the catalytic convertor on the exhaust. Of course, the lambda sensor on this car model was not of the standard cheap type. The diagnostic man said about £300. On ebay I got one for £62. All internet instructions said a 15 minute job. However to save my husband of having to struggle under the car got a garage to do the job, which took 10 mins and cost £10. Car now runs like a dream, no flat spot and no chugging.

My car keeps cutting off and idling high after I have replaced the starter and spark plugs


check the spark plugs wire , could possibly have a cut, to do so, start the engine and remove one wire from the spark plug wearing a rubber glove, and direct the end of it to a metal part and keep and eye on the sparks are they continuous or random, then put it back,do that to each wire one by one, if u notice a sparking cut in one of them so u might wana change them. "before doing all that make sure they are plugged in correctly and tightly from both side, spark plug side and distributor."
