Ok it seems to happen when the engine is warm. Tonight after work I decided to drive down some back roads and rev the engine and it just shoots straight up vey easily across all the gears even half throttle. I could smell a bit of burning so I quickly drove home easily.

Can anyone please help me? I am getting quite worried now.

Edit: The car has a long crank, I replaced the spark plugs and battery so I think it is possibly the fuel filter that needs to be replaced.

Do you think that the transmission is going or is it just lack of fuel?
