CAR GOES INTO LIMP MODE AND WILL NOT ACCELERATE, PROBLEM RIGHTS ITSELF UNTIL NEXT LONG JOURNEY. DOES EVENTUALLY PICK UP SPEED BUT TAKES AGES. ELECTRIC FAN ON EXCESSIVELY EVEN AFTER SHORT JOURNEY, NO HOT AIR FROM HEATER. DEALERSHIP SEEMS UNABLE TO DIANOSE AND FIX PROBLEMS

Should have a stored fault code when scanned . Fuel filter been changed ?
I had a problem years back car with the heater blowing cold , fan coming on too much . Had a engineer up from the factory to help in resolving it Took a while to solve before it was found . It was the head gasket that had a slight leak that over a short time would airlock cooling system . Might be related to your fault or you could have more than one fault .
