Hi all, wandering if anyone can help.

My car has become increasingly worse when idling. It is very rough and the rpm gauge moves all over the place.

It is also rough and spluttery when accelerating.

Its fine when cruiseing on the highway.

can anyone please offer any opinions.

Cheers

Fuel filter can cause those problems. Cheap place to start looking!
