Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
From what you are describing the issue that you are having is consistent with a electrically failing crankshaft position sensor, the sensor will likely need to be ohm tested and replaced.

hi thanks i will look into that , but this morning i let the engine tick over at about 3 mins the engine sort of hesitated then picked up is this also a sign of crank sensor on its way out ? i had also thought of the ambient air sensor as the mornings have been a lot colder of late , but the crank sensor i will replace thank you
