HELP!! Problem with Skoda Fabia - stuttering acceleration'??
My Mum has a 2001 Skoda Fabia 1.4, and its been fine since shes had it until recently when its developed a problem where it stutters when accelerating, and sometimes stalls - it also ticks over poorly, and sometimes stalls ticking over.
The stuttering on acceleration is mainly when you try to accelerate in a high gear - if youre in 4th at 40 and accelerate, it stutters like a kangaroo start - but if you changed to 3rd it would probably be ok.
Anyone got any idea what might be the cause?
Im going to change the plugs as they havent been changed since new (done 36k) - should really have been changed in a service last year but werent. When I took the plugs out just now they were all powedery matt black, with the top of 'arm' a copper colour, and the inside bit copper colour too?
Anyone got any idea what the problem could be? Maybe simply down to the plugs??
