I've managed to avoid any garage visits for the last 60,000 miles by doing the necessary oil, filter and suspension work to date, but have an issue that occasionally occurs before the engine is fully up to temperature. It is the V6 engine by the way. I don't hammer the engine before it's fully warm, but do have to join a fast main road from a minor road with an appalling visibility splay. This is within three hundred yards of my house so the car is still effectively cold. I need a bit of acceleration to safely clear the junction. My motor has recently started to momentarily die and then recover. So it initially picks up, but then it's like the fuel has been abruptly shut off before picking up again. Not ideal as I don't particularly want to be broadsided. Were I to take it to my nearest dealer it would be warm as it's 50 miles away, and the problem would not show up. Any ideas where to start to look please?
