Engine just cutting out
I have a 2000 156 and a few weeks ago after being parked up for half hour, it wouldn't start. It turned over but just wouldn't fire. After leaving it for 20 mins, it then started on the button. This became more and more frequent until 2 days ago when it cut out at idle at a junction. It turns over but refuses to start for at least 20 mins. If its just left alone, it will then fire up on the button. This has happened 3 times in 2 days and is confusing the hell out of me.
I thought maybe it has some dirt in the fuel line that blocks the fuel so you get fuel starvation, but the car doesn't peter out, it's a dead cut out, no spluttering, just cuts out.
The Engine management light has been coming on and going off intermittantly for well over a year with no issues.
Has anyone had this before or has any ideas.
