Car idles at 800rpm, try to accelerate and revs between 800rpm and 2000rpm splutters and pops feels like it wants to pull but will drop back to 800rpm, be glad for any advice, car ran sweet for the last four years until this issue, many thanks!

My c2 ticks over perfectly but as I apply accelerator there is no power to drive off as if it wants to cut out but doesn't.
