    Mine needed new plugs and leads as it was misfiring and generally farting about. After that, it absolutely flew again, but then it was last of the mk 5 XR3i's with the 130ps motor and no weight to speak of!

    As for petrol smell, could be related, but I've not had 'Eric' for a few years now and can't remember if it did it.

    Check the crossover pipe too, the one that goes over the top of the motor, they can dislodge if memory serves.


    God I still miss that car..... Chav as hell, but superb fun. Sharon loved it to bits too.

    hey guys update here ive changed the spark plugs leads and fuel filter and its still the same. If you build the revs up slowly it will go up too rev limit however if you put ur foot to the floor the car will not rev past 3.5k-4k its sucking air ok and its blowing air out of exhaust ok. Does this sound like a fuel starvation problem. The other question is where the ****** hell is the fuel pump? is it on top of the petrol tank?
