Have you got the problem sorted yet?
Does your have a timing chain? At the begining of the year my engine was noisy and felt like it had no power, I had the timing chain replaced as it was worn and jumped a tooth. There is a lot of improvement but the car is still not running at its best and has the same problem as yours. I have been again told the chain may not have been timed properly, but surely if this was the case the problem would be constant.

funny enough had a mechanic look at it yesterday for me recons one of the injectors went causing the problems but now another has gone so the car wont even start will cost £40 to find out what injectors have gone and they cost about £40 - £50 each to replace plus mechanic charges
