    hi

    driving last night and all of a sudden the starter light started flashing, and my car would not pass 2000rpm in any gear

    i drove for a while as i was on the motor way, pulled over, turned car of and on again (i work in IT so that usually works :Smile:) and the car would now go beyond 2000 RPM but the starter light/coil still flashes!?

    the car was parked at the airport for 3 days , and ill admit i did floor it when i got into the car pretty quickly

    anyone any ideas? can't seem to find my manual this morn..

    flashing starter/coil light?

    Fuel filter would be the favourite culprit.
    Has it been recently serviced? If so genuine parts?

    It'll be the fuel filter. Common problem. Must be genuine regardless of what people will tell you.
