Hi it is da53vty no it dose not

Hi thanks

ok this is the last of the mk1 transit connect with the 1.8tdvi varient

The mk 1 connect was never fitted with auto stop start on this model of vehicle

the Stop start function is a factory fitted system only and cannot be retro fitted if the vehicle doesn’t have it due to the complexity of the system

It’s fine when it’s driving would be intermittent haven’t seen any black smoke . No warnings lights

Hi thanks

ok the most common issue is a partially blocked fuel filter on the 1.8tdci varient

this causes pockets of air into the system causing lower Erratic rpm at idle and cutting out

this should be your first port of call with issues like you described

I would replace this firstly and reappraise the issue

other areas to look at are again in the fuel system the leak off pipes are prone for leaking and drawing air at idle

other issues can be a sticking egr valve but this commonly gives you unresponsive throttle

If you need any further help or technical assistance going forward

please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
