Will try not to bore but get to the details, basically ive owned the for-mentioned 325 for 2 weeks and it was bought down south, near London, my old boy picked it up drove it up and mentioned it stalled a few times but was fine apart from that, well since then, every 2nd or 3rd time i start it a little press (maybe half inch ) on throttle she will stall, and then u turn over again and rev her up then she stalls again. anyway this can go on and on for quite a few times and even then its patchy running, Took it out for a long spin and found very little power there, seemed like not enough power getting through.Sometimes car will run fine until shutdown then a restart is like a totally different car.
Anyways so far Ive disconnected the MAF, and took it for a short run and it was much better, so i thought MAF is the culprit (bare in mind im defo no mechanic) so i got hold of some CRC cleaner, took the MAF out (its a Siemens make) and cleaned the sensor, replaced everything and seemed to go ok, turned engine over 4-6 times just to be sure. Then when i got home same crap again :(
Just want to know, shall i look for a new MAF sensor? to me it seems to be that, but getting very low on cash so thought id ask for some advise before i buy a new one, Any advise much appreciated
PS, when ignition is on (not turned over) engine light appears orange doesnt go away, once engine turned over light goes away, not sure if that means anything as it does go away, but stays on during ignition ...
Thanks in advance
