Re: nea and car is a p reg 1.6sx bravo

Need more info.
Has it just started to do this or has it been like this for a while?
Has it had any work done to it recently?
Is there an injector or engine management warning light on dash? Injectors are a very common fault on the 1.6, i should know i've just fixed mine. Other faults could be sensors, spark plugs and HT leads.

When my injector went, no warning light came up straight away. You could always take it to a Fiat garage and get an engine diagnostic done, these cost about 40 and almost always shows what the fault is.

very easy, you can quickly diagnose the injectors with a multimeter, and then replace any using the numerous guides in previous threads.

personally i dont think its an injector fault.
