H i just had my EB XR8's radiator proffesionally flushed and repalcement tank, engine and flushed and thermo stat checked.
When driving to the place of repair the car was running sweet as, when picked car up and drove like 400m the car started running like crap, missing and having flat spots, would that be an indication of a coolant temp sensor problem or could be a fuel side of things.
I have checked all wires and air lines, runs well at around 2000 rpm but runs rough under that.
Any ideas

Complete spitballing here but perhaps a little bit of water made its way into the dizzy cap??

Hopefully they have not cracked the head for you when they did it.
