Hi there,good evening to you and sorry for the delayed response
Ok does the engine just cut out and you can restart it
Does the glowplug warning light flash when this happens
Or do you need to jump start the engine after it has died

Hi there Matthew ,good morning to you
Ok as the glow plug light has flashed and vehicle cut out this inficates a fault within the electronic engine managment system
The first thing that must be done before going any further is to have a diagnostic fault code check done on the PCM
This is imperative to correctly diagnosing this issue
The common issues we see on the earlier connect are blocked fuel filters ,excessivly worn fuel injectors ,an injector shorting out internally or camshaft sensor issues
These are the most common issues (fault code pending ) in regards ***** ***** issue Matthew but nothing should be done until the relavent fault code is checked as without the correct fault code you can end up replacing parts that aren't needed costing you time and money
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue Matthew please let me know
If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice
PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER
Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice day
We can continue in this same post even after eating is given if you wish to discuss further after the fault code check has been carried out
Brian
