Check the air filter, replace if necessary.

Clean the MAF.

Change the gearbox oil.

It's amazing how many faults can be sorted by just those 3 things.

sorry what is the MAF

Mass Air Flow sensor.

The location of yours is shown (not very clearly I'm afraid) here. Click on 'Component location' and then on 'B2/5'.

General procedure for cleaning it is outlined in the DIY section of this forum here

You may get a reply from someone who has actually done it on your engine.

You could try just unplugging it and try the car,, pull the connector off the camshaft adjuster and see if it is oily at all,,it right at the top on the front middle of the engine
