Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

What is the mileage on the car?

What is its service / recent repair history?

Are there any fault lights on the dash when its running ?

Exactly what has been done so far in a bid to cure this?

Hello again Allan..

Thank you for your reply and info..

Can I just clarify with you Alan... you say it has had a service - 3 days ago.... but that the problem started about a week ago... is that correct?

If so - was it put in for a service for this reason / in a bid to cure the issue?

If so, what exactly did they do / conclude on this - and did they replace any parts specifically for this issue / fault ?
