Welcome to the Forum

Does it cut out when you dip the clutch to change gear, also when it starts and idles it cuts out, try the Idle Control Valve

Also check the Throttle body isn't coked up

Thanks for your reply.
The codes came up as the oxygen sensor. I've changed the the sencer and now it's worse.the tool sign has now come off and now the engine management light is on constant.
The revs don't die when I dip the clutch.but do die from 1st/2nd.it's now using excessive fuel.seems to run better 1st thing in the morning.code is still showing oxygen sensor.
Help would be appreciated
Many thanks

Not unusual for the non original sensors to be wired incorrectly, there was another thread on here this week where this was the case.
