I have a 1.6 ELXi Sportrak 1993, when the engine warms up and the temp gauge moves just past the C to normal, the engine managment light flickers on, it splutters and if you let the reves die it cuts out. After cutting out it won't re-start for about 10 mins. when cooled a bit it then starts again.
The strange thing is that if you run it at high rev's the spluttering passes and once up to the edge of the thermometer (normal) she goes like muck off a stick.
Can anyone help me please? It's driving me mad. I need to know where to look for this fault so as to resolve it once and for all.
Thank you all
