Try running a GOOD fuel system cleaner through it.

All well & good but you need to make it work without thrashing it.

Run it with a double dose of Millers in the tank. If that makes no difference
I would think that you have a problem with the fuel system.

+ 1 on the millers

i had a mondeo for a short time (bag of sh1t) and the only way to stop the injectors knocking and the thing kanging on over run was to use millers at x2 dosage.

i always use the stuff in all my motors now - more mpg and runs smoother - but this may just be my imagination :whistle:

Check the flexible fuel pipes for dampness. They can break down/decompose & let air into the system.Go back to the tank,not just the engine bay.
I'm not a fan of Redex.Millers or Forte really work.Millers for constant use & Forte for deep cleaning(not necessary if Millers is used regularly)
