hi,
i am looking for a it of advice, after approx 10 mins driving the car suddenly looses power foot to the floor and it stay roughly same speed, this happens mostly in open road but when going into town also, I had same issue few weeks back and found calliper sticking ( I have replaced front brake pads/disc and now callipers in recent months it felt like same problem as though brakes were sticking then letting off) how ever on checking of discs they both seem fine and no excess staining on wheels suggesting a locked brake. can any one give me anything to check I have new set of spark plugs to fit. would rather try a few things first before putting to a garage incase they start swapping bits for fun. thanks for any info in advance. I will try and record the issue with passenger holding a phone. don't know if this is any thing to do with it but if this happens and idle at junction the car behaves erratically as though its away to stall as revs go down to just above 0.4 rpm

The cats are up at the front of the system where they get hot enough to work. Other than that same heat nlt being good for the threads on the mounting bolts making them superbly difficult to get off , changing the cats is a straight forward simple tools job.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

I'd say so.

Get a new car on as soon as you can.
