Sudden drop in acceleration when driving

Post by lee warner »

Hi
I've got a 1985 reg MR2 that was sat in a garage for 15 years. Has been serviced, MOT'd etc and also been to 3 garages for diagnostics. When I drive it it's okay for a bit and then suddenly loses power (sometimes half way around an island, which is never good). Also on start up it's revving up and down.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sort that issue out first before investigating your other one.
If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much room!
