When it cuts out there are no engine management lights. It just starts missing a few times then cuts out but starts straight away with the key. It is ok for a period of time afterwards but then it does it again

Hi there thanks

ok the most common cause of this issue on the 1.8 tdci is a short circuit inside one of the injectors

this will cause a few hesitations then the engine will cut out with immediate start up possible

a fault code check should be carried out to verify what cylinder is impacted using diagnostic equipment

If you need any further help or technical assistance going forward

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