    Default Fuel filter

    Well just an update, and thanks to those who commented on my thread.

    It was the ****** fuel filter again!!! (7,300 miles)

    I changed filter for Bosch one last friday and have done 1k since and not one but of hesitation, full power whenever needed :-)

    What was interesting was top half of filter was like brand new, bottom half really dirty?!?!

    What was your original symptoms?

    My filter was replaced early this year by Vx.

    Since using a tank of Esso, my car feels sluggish, has some hesitation/misfire.

    Back to Shell from now on.

    Every time I floor it and the car hits 3,000 rpm it looses power, and was just getting worse day by day.

    In the back of ur mind u r thinking scv valves but again it turned out to be fuel filter again
