    Default Is My Car Gonna Be Ok???

    hi folks. this has happened to me a couple of times. was driving earlier, and in 3rd and 4th gear when i accelerate hard, nothing happens, just the revs go really high, but the car doesn't accelerate? any ideas what it could be? im crapping myself thinking it's going to be an expensive fix! all and any help very much appreciated. thank you in advance.

    yes car operates fine in 1st, 2nd, 5th gears. the fault only occurs when i put my foot right down and accelerate hard. when i accelerate smoothly it picks up speed just fine.

    i have got a 53 plate 1.8 SRi DualFuel NAV. the car has been well maintained. full VX history. i'm the third owner, only had the car about 2 months, the mileage on car is 73k. recently had full cambelt kit etc replaced. runs just fine apart from this problem which has risen. also to point out, my CC conked out last night, got it working this morning. then at around lunchtime i noticed the 3rd and 4th gear problems.
