1 Random cutting out or dying on 13th May 2014, 8:13 pm

Car keeps dying on me and I don't know why, whether I'm driving hard or just taking it easy and it's really starting to piss me off now. I'll be driving along and next minute the engine starts dying on me no power at all drop a gear and still nothing pull over at a safe point and soon as I put the clutch in the car stalls and won't restart till about 10-15 minutes later then she dies again 5 mins later driving or just idling.

Any my help would be appreciated

Welcome to the forum, sounds like it could also be a coil pack failing?

Yeah pretty much like everything is slowly shutting down, had the rac man out and he said the spark looked a little delayed but not much and put it down to CAS

Ive just had the same problem night before last, But min wouldn't restart... It was getting no fuel so took fuel pump out & put it in a bucket of fuel & directly wired to battery, it was priming & turning over but not pumping any fuel threw... So maybe worth checking

As said on phone the other day
Check the fuel pump and the filter sock as I suspect that may be blocking the fuel from entering the bump when coming on boost and you requiring more fuel so pumps cutting, check that first

Could also be a fault with the Clifford control box but I would try swapping the easy bits first then see how you go

Btw welcome to the forum   Smile
