Do you mean that when you go to pull away, the car revs but seems sluggish?, could be your clutch, how many miles has it done?

12000 miles it sometimes doesnt pull away

frenchfanrte - could you perhaps elaborate on the problem? What happens when you let the clutch out? Do the revs drop (to what rpm), or do they stay up (at what rpm)? Do you have any indicator lights on the dash? If so, which ones?

Simon, can you explain in as much waffle that you like a little bit more about the problem with the car ?

Does the engine rev but then stall or stop as you move the clutch up ?

Or does the engine continue to rev with the clutch pedal up ?

With a worn clutch you would notice it slipping ( engine revs increasing ) as you tried to drive uphill.
