Hi, My problem started instantly. It feel like its running out of petrol. It will not pull under load car starts fine and will rev up ok. As soon as I let the clutch up in gear it starts to get boggy. It keeps making all four spark plugs go black and smell like petrol. When it goes boggy I get popping from the down pipe like ignition of unburnt petrol. The cat look like its not collapsed. It did have fault codes
0420
1405
0500
0130
Which I dont think are related as there from previous problems Iv since cleared them and they have not come back. Also egr is working fine.
iv done a live test and and dont have the knowledge to decipher it. I could email the file if you like.
