Hi,
What question would you like answered about this? What information are you seeking?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Would u have any idea what the problem would be? could it be injectors?

Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
usually a vehicle cutting out is suffering from a problem with fuel delivery or possibly a faulty engine sensor
injecetors usually cause rough running, not cutting out
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

When the air suspension bag was been fitted the mechanic took out the back seats could there be wires there that got nipped?

Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.

I suppose that is feasible, but very unlikely, especially since the vehicle ran fine for a period.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

when these repairs were done they weren't cleared with the computer, could this be a problem to what happened?

Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.
no clearing suspension faults from the computer will not cause the engine to cut out.

Thank you hopefully i'll get it sorted! worried as my car is out of warrenty and the expense! will get them to check engine sensors and fuse box along with fuel delivery. thx

there was new brakes fitted too but this would have no bearing on cut off?

Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.

no, brakes cannot cause an engine to shut off.
