Engine cut out issue tdi
« on: May 07, 2015, 04:06:53 PM »
My Galaxy has started cutting out when driving but - after coming to a halt - the car will always start without any bother.
It maybe coincidence (and luck), but has generally been happening while car is slowing or while travelling at low-ish speed (<30 mph).
There are no other symptoms prior to the cut out and none following restart. The car will also run trouble-free for a couple of days or so before the issue re-occurs...
Today had a real near miss so not driving car until issue resolved.
I'd be grateful for any help!!
Thanks in advance.

BTW - It's a diesel so has no fuel inertia switch

First step is to read the codes and see if any faults logged.

Otherwise just guesswork.

Mine has done this a few times recently, usually at low speeds while manoeuvring. It's as if it's being starved of fuel. Sometimes turns over and over as if the fuel has run out.
