Hello and welcome,
My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
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.
the most common thing that would cause the vehicle to cut out like this would be a fuel pump or injector issue.
the best or really only way to verify will be to replicate the issue at a time when fuel pressure can be tested and live diagnostics run
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.
