has anyone had thisa fault before? engine starts fine after half an hour driving when you accelerate the engine just stops .:confused: no warning lights on dash its all lit up normally then after 15 seconds or so a little symbol comes up like the glow plug warming light but the loops are straight lines up and down .bit like a heart beat on those hospital programs if you know what i mean. to get engine running all you need to do is turn ignition off/on and it fires up and ticks over fine but as soon as you accelarate say mid to full acc pedal down it cuts out again. the garage i bought the car from says its a injector problem but im not sure as i thought it would just run on 3 cylinders not stop the engine alltogether.any assistance in this matter would be of help

Do a search for EGR valve it sounds like this may be your first culprit;)

Have a leakback test on your injectors, this sounds like a excess leakback issue, if you read the fault code on the ECU it will probably say p1882

You may need one or more new injectors

Hello gsxrkid75 & welcome. :)

I've relocated your post to the Engines section

I'm no teckie expert but I'd suspect the EGR valve too.

The :censored: things are a pest.
