What would cause this?

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 issue would be an interruption in fuel delivery.
the common causes are faulty transfer pump, faulty high pressure pump, clogged filter or faulty injectors
unfortunately given the general nature of the symptoms proper hands on diagnostics will need to be carried out to verify 100%
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.
