hi all finaly found out what the problem was, the spare parts sold me spark plugs for the s2 el v8 because i was putting gas on the car, s1 gap is 1.4 and series 2 gap is 1.1 and this caused the big problem since i have the plugs for the series 1 now the car runs perfect and is excellent on the gas, would recommend, just watch what plugs go into the car and what they sell you as the gasp difference is important can cause alot of problems as i spent lots on trying to locate the problem on to be something stupid
