    It is a 2000my 1.8 vetc 5 door drop in new plugs and air filter but still happeningany clues?

    Have you changed the fuel filter?

    I could agree with Cliff a car of your age would logically take the guess of the fuel filter. check the dizzy rotor check the high tension leads.

    EGR blockage potentially but that just a speculative guess.

    hi thanks for the suggestions i think it may be more serious as i have a strange noise coming from the left had side as you look at the front of the car which goes away when i press the clutch..the cars done 92000 so its probably inevitable
