Customer Question

Hi,
My car doesn't seem to be working. It's been playing up for a while - suddenly losing the ability to accelerate and the engine sounding erratic. Then it kept struggling, making a strange gurgling bubbly sound then cutting out. Now it starts, splutters and dies.
It's a 2000 Lupo VW 0.9L petrol.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Charley
