Car accelerates hard in first gear to high revs but on change to 2nd gear, when pedal is pushed flat the engine dies completely til it's backed off a bit then drives on OK.
Its like someone turns the key off????
Normal driving seems OK but has rough idle.
Any ideas welcome.

That is a weird problem. I think you need to fix the idle issue first as that is probably the source.

I agree with Howsie, address the idle issue first. I suspect its something to do with the vacuum system. Might be a good idea to clean the lines switching valves etc
