MG ZS Enging struggling to put down power
Hi, all, never been on this forum before and I'm not really that car savvy. got a 2005 1.6 MG ZS that is having some engine problems. Driving out and about today in the lower gears it feels like the car is struggling to put any power down on the ground, it will move for a maybe 10 seconds or so and it's like it finds what it's looking for and will move off at the speed its supposed to. This happens in 1st through 3rd ( have had it up to higher gears with this problem thus far ) When the car is idling it feels as if it's searching for the correct rhythm it normally runs at causing the whole car to shudder violently and can sometimes cause the engine to die all together, leaving it for 10 minutes or so and it will turn back over again but not before this time. No dash warning lights come on when this happens and the car has fuel, coolant and oil so anything else is beyond my knowledge.
Anything you guys can to do help would be great!
Cheers in advance
