Starts fine, goes for about 2 mins then dies out n stalls (like fuel/ignition cut off), turn key back to off then restarts.

Did it a few times when i 1st bought it (would do it once then re-start & be fine for the rest of the day, no matter how far you went)

Last night going to the meeting, got about 3 miles from home, it died, stopped then restarted............got about 1/2 mile, did it again........another 1/2 mile, did it again...repeated 10 times before i got royally p*ssed off & crawled home with hazards on!! Evil or Very Mad

always restarts but then goes virtually same distance before dies out, always starts 1st time on the key in the morning!!

wa-hey!!!..................dont you just love a cheap n simple fix! Twisted Evil

(an im not talkin about glue sniffing by the way! Laughing )

Just went out to play with the motor, i had replaced the engine bay fuel filter last week & presumed that was the only one in the system.

Just found another one behind the tank in the outlet side......caked full o' crap!

Replaced it with a universal one from in the garage.
Just been for a testrun & it ran sooo much better, didnt cut out & saw an easy 60 up the bypass. pale

Touchwood sorted but gutted i missed the meet for something so simple Rolling Eyes
