have you tried the map/maf sensors if your ride is lopping it might not be getting enough air unplug one at a time till you source out the issue hope this helps

No not thought of that,will give it a go.are these located near the air filter as it's not something i've had to do on any of my other cars so a bit of a novice.Thanks for your help.

yeah dude thet are located on the air intake tube or neer it it will look like a (sorry for the stupidity) dryer vent flap in side if it isnt opening up enough it will make your car run like a bagged heap

if its not the maf sensor (guessing its the 8v engine) it could be something stupid like a vacum pipe sounds stupid i know but can cause it to idle high and run rough sounds like the maf sensor tho to me
