d1 cutting out when stoping


Recommended Posts

I had a problem with my 300 Tdi where the engine would cut out at random times. Sometimes when I stopped, sometimes when I put my size 11 down hard, sometimes when cruising. Thought it may have been the pump power wire, but that didn't resolve anything.

at some point of poking around the engine bay for what ever reason I was there, I unscrewed the bottom of the fuel filter to drain out any carp that may have been in there (assumed water) and, touch wood, I haven't had the problem again.

Give that a try. Can't hurt

I don't know if you are aware, but typing in caps is shouting and is considered rude on most internet forums.

Some more info on the vehicle would be useful- age/engine type - I'm assuming it's a diesel.

Does it splutter and stop - i.e. revs drop to the point that it stalls? Or does it just switch off? Will it start straight away or do you have to leave it for a bit?
