I have a 1999 1.2 petrol Kangoo van with the D7F engine (8v) and I am having an absolute nightmare with it. A couple of weeks ago it started stalling when I came to a stand still, without juddering, but it just started up again on the key. It finally broke down and wouldn't start again.

Well I hope you can understand all that!
Any advice is welcome,
Thanks in advance!
