Right i have a 2000, v reg, 316 compact with the 1.9 engine.
Now it had cut out a few times so got it on a diagnostic, the maf sensor came up so i swapped that for a new one.
It was fine for ages but now tonight it has cut out over 10 times in 2 journeys, onky short trips of about 10miles in total.
Just wondered if there are any suggestions.
It will be fine then the throttle pedal does nothing and if in 3rd gear or above it will die slowly then cut out.
But in lower gears just seems to stop straight away.
Sometimes it will start right up again but others i need to pump the throttle a bit and turn it over a couple of times before it runs ok. Tonight one time it started and then immediately began to back fire and pop and bang before dying and then starting again.
Its had an oil change and filter. The coil pack was changed recently and its got plenty of new looking parts from the former owner.
Im going to check the spark plugs but the ht leads look new.
Any help would be great as it seems to be getting worse with the colder weather!
