    Default Sluggish acceleration & power steering failure

    Over the past week or so my car seems to have problems accelerating i can put my foot right down to the floor and get hardly any response just the car feeling like its chugging along and struggles to move past 2000rpm after driving for a while it seems to go back to normal. This doesnít happen every day sometimes I can get in and its fine, the only other thing that has happened over the last week is that I started the engine and went to drive off but had no power steering so I switched off and restarted and it returned. Iíve had no warning lights to show a problem the only thing from asking people at work is they think it could be the lambda sensor (but I have no idea where that is). Any suggestions on the problem much appreciated.

    I have a 300 mile drive home on Friday, is the car safe to drive that distance?

    Car is booked in for its 4th year service on Saturday, should I mention this to the garage or let them see if they find the problem?

    Tried everything recommended on here none of it worked!!

    So changed fuel and air filters as cheapest option seems to have done the trick.

    Ta for the help
