It could be anything from a plugged catalytic converter to a fuel or ignition problem on this, your best bet is to get it into a shop for repair.

Thank you Rowefast. I've no cash to get it looked at so was hoping & preying it could be something straight forward if not I'll have to leave it on the drive & be car less but thank you for answering


Yea, sorry, not on that one,
