Arrow Help with my Clio please


Ive just been having some problems with my Clio today and am getting worried. I was hoping someone here could help me.

Problem: My 98 1.2L 8Valve mk2 Clio has been fine everyday since ive had it. i really love it (actually im getting an electric window conversion to it). Today i was taking a ordinary drive to the shopping centre about 20 miles away. On a roundabout i was in traffic. About to move off and suddenly my engine cuts out! i thought maybe i had just stalled the car but it wouldn't restart until the 3rd attempt.

Thinking maybe it was a one off thing just carried on driving about 1 mile down the road i was waiting to take a right turn and the engine just cut out again! this time it started again on the 2nd attempt.

After this it drove fine to the shopping centre and did the 20 miles back easily.

Im very worried now as i feel i cant trust the car. Also im taking a trip with the missus on thursday to the peak district which is around 100miles away and really feel uncomfortable with the car.

I think before the 2nd engine cut out i saw the oil pressure warning light come on just before the engine cut out. The oil should be fine though as i had it serviced just a few months ago.

If anyone can help i would very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
