Could anyone shed some light on this problem i am having, My VR series 2 Calais after a few mins of driving starts to shake/run really rough and has a lot of trouble accelerating, then once we come to a stop say at the lights the revs will drop below 750rpm and shakes violently,tho this doesn't always happen but is becoming more and more frequent and is raising concern, i have a few theory's like the fuel filter but not certain. any help would be great.

The error code came out as "12" and from what the Gregory's manual says its fine. I also check for bubbles coming out of the top of the radiator while it was running and there wasn't any, i should of mentioned that the car has been using a bit of water lately :S

Is the fuel pump making a whiring buzzing noise,Stand at the back of the car and you will hear it. If it is this also is a sign of a blocked or restricted fuel filter .mine was doing this i changed the filter and it cured it.
