I'm a moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

If this is directly after having the car serviced in Swindon, your best bet would be to take it back to them directly. While inconvenient, a 100km tow is worth the piece of mind of not potentially doing further damage as well as getting the shop to correct what is very likely a problem they inadvertantly created.

If you simply want to get it serviced where you are, be aware that you will forfeit any claim to the prior shop. Once another shop touches it, the problem is no longer the responsibility of the original shop... neither morally nor legally.

Based on your description, I would be most concerned about an intake leak somewhere or plug problem if it was related to service. If unrelated or only possibly related, a damaged ignition coil (fairly common).
