The last few weeks I have had problems with my car. It all started when I did a quick to 2 min from work to a cash point to get some money. Got back in the car and it wouldn't start. You could hear the starter motor going but the engine just wouldn't fire up. I left it for about 5 mins then finally after 4 seconds of cranking it finally turned on. Worked fine all that night. Then it happened again the next day, I pulled up on the work car park, parked got out and realised how badly I was out of the lines, so went to start it up to move it and it took 6-10 seconds of cranking to start. Then when I got home pulled up on the drive turned off the car and went into the house for 2 mins. Came out and was going to pull my car into the garage to have a look at some stuff and it wouldn't start. Was cranking over for ages and nothing. Tryed again 10 mins later and it worked. Then a few days later it cut out on me for the first time while I was ide at a traffic light, couldn't get it started so had to get out and push my car in rush hour traffic into a near side road (sorry if I caused anyone near the roundabout just off junction 2 on the M5 any hold up, it was me slowing the traffic down lol). Kept trying to turn it over while I was parked in side road waiting for the AA to come drag my ass 30 miles to my local mechanic. When they AA guy turned up it decided to start up
. He said he would follow me home incase it cut out. Pulled out the side road got 10 meter and it died again! It wouldn't start again so he dragged me home. Left it at the garage last wednesday for them to have a look, and it's started fine every time for them even after a good run. Left it to idle for about 2 hours and didn't cut out once. They tryed connecting the diagnostic machine upto the car, but the car refused to let the PC look at the information. Anyway, picked it up thursday afternoon and it was working fine didnt have a single problem until today. Cut out while idle at lights again! Tryed starting it up for about 10 seconds, but no luck.. Left it a min or 2 while cursing at the car for been such a pain and tryed again. It started!! Got home fine no problems.
I really need to get this fixed as I no longer trust my car. Any ideas what it could be? When it cuts out it dies instantly, theres no spluttering as if it isn't getting fuel etc..
