1997 Vauxhall Tigra

Engine Performance problem
1997 Vauxhall Tigra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 85727 miles

Hi,
I have a 1997 Vauxhall Tigra with a 1.4 ecotec engine & automatic gearbox.
It struggles to start & when it starts it struggles on low revs but revs freely over 3,000 rpm. When put into gear it struggles & wont move. The exhaust manifold glows red hot when it gets to normal running temperature.
Could you please help
Thanks

Check for a plugged/blocked catalytic convertor !

I got a new cat from kwik-fit today & its made no difference.I have also replaced the lambada sensor & air mass flow meter.
I think its getting close to being left at the scrappies as its costng more than the value of the car.
