Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated - thanks very much
it couid be a cat-convertor fault or coil problem causing the car to over fuel,
but icouid be wrong,
one of the other members will hopefully be able to offer you better advice,
iwouidnt recomend driving the car till you have the fault sorted,
my mate had asimilar problem with a Renault espace he was advised not to drive it the outcome was not good
