  • Sounds like the coil pack
  • maybe call Halfords and ask them what they think the cause might be?
  • Halfords have a car care centre near asda in Charlton.
  • Check you haven't dislodged an ht lead and it's only firing on 3 cylinders.

    Or spilled some oil down a plug hole.

  • You only have to run over an Italian to top up the oil on a Fiat.
  • Think Beckboy is correct, check coil pack
  • FIAT ... Fix It Again Tony .. sounds like plugs/leads as said above
  • Are you sure that you needed more oil and if so have you only topped up to the required level. At my garage in Gravesend, it is not uncommon for people who don't know about cars, to just pour oil into the engine without regard to how much. The engine should only be topped to the correct level

    Fix it again tomorrow sounds better.

    And as valleyveteran said have you overfilled it?

  • Could be the crankshaft sensor. My rover had that go a month back and there was inconsistent losses of power when driving/idle.
