has the car been sat for any period of time?? if so a decent run may clear it out.

if its been missfiring have you changed the plugs as at least one will be fouled, causing major loss in power and rough running

yeah im guessing its been sat for a while ive had all the plugs out and cleaned them up one was very dirty from where it was miss firing ive cured the miss fire but id love to give it a good drive but unfortunately as soon as i try and accelerate it dies it will only keep running if i jab the throttle
