Hi there, have an old citi golf,
Problem: Starts fine, runs ok, accelerates to touch immediately, however when driving the car, after a short while it starts jerking and cuts out!
Just had full service, replaced the battery, TCI unit, fuel pump, carburator and temp sensor/sensor unit and yet the problem pesists.
Not sure if the problem could be electrical, feels like this car has a mind of its own, please advise, many thanks.
