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.
