There are 2 things that can go wrong one cheap and the other around $100-200. The first problem could be the fuel filter if it is getting plugged up it wont allow the fuel to flow through to your engine sufficiently, but at faster speed it will still allow the fuel to flow enough. The other problem could be the fuel pump, this is the more expenive route. This will have the same effect on a car as the fuel filter. If I were you I would try replacing the fuel filter first to see if that made a change, this should only cost you around $5-20.

Car is cutting out when stopping or slowing down, revs are goin down


1 Check for vacuum leaks, 2 Check the EGR valve, on mine the large nut on the metal pipe had come loose. 3 Clean and re-gap (or replace) spark plugs seemed to help. Mine (2004) needed new EGR valve to fix.

hello ive got a problem my golf 1.4 16v petrol year 2000when it reaches 2700 revs it cuts out and restarts like I basicly turned the ignition off and on again althought no other elictrical part of the car goes off stationary or driving it makes no differenceif im driveing along at 2700 revs just before it cuts out and drop a gear it lets me go past 2700 thus i can wind my way throught the gears past 3000 revs
as soon as i slow down around 3000-2700 revs it cuts bk to doing the same on off on offthe radio-lights-windscreen wipers don't slow/shut off while this occurs and nor does anything elseoccasional when this random cutting out /restarting happens the oil light-pump stops working /light comes on and the rev counter stops working so i have to pull over and restart the car.its just passed a MOT with no faults and wonderfully for me the fault didn't happen that day ....ive changes plugs wires checked fuel pump-air pressure and i cant find anything
pls could you give me some hints etc of what might be the issue

Ford puma 1998 Drivers and rear footwells filling with water.


There could be a number of places the water could be coming from does the leak start from front and work its way back?
Try the following -

. A faulty seal at the bodywork joints below the reinforcing panel may allow water entry in the area of the side trim panel and bulkhead.
Check the area for faulty sealing. If necessary, seal the bodywork joints with sealer.

start with the easiest.
