Hello

this sounds like a lack of fuel and could be a lack of fuel pressure from the electrical pump at the tank.

If the connections to the pump are corroded or damaged then the pump could stop at any time or could not be running at full speed. Check that its relay switches in and out and the relay contacts are clean and bright – replace the relay if in any doubt and do the same for the fuse,

Ideally measure the pressure at the injectors and if this is low check the pump as described and also consider changing the fuel filter as if this partially blocked this too will reduce pressure.

Thank you could you please advise how much this would roughly cost

Hello

parts would be about £100 and I'd expect about 2 hours labour to replace a pump ( so £60/ hour?) any garage should be able to do this so no need to visit the dealers
