Re: 33 cutting out
excerpt from my reply on HJ:
Lets get down to business: It could be anything really. It's pretty hard troubleshooting something like that without experiencing the way is surges and then dies. But I can come up with a few educated guesses. Let's start with the cheapest ones first:
1: Fuel tank breather valve is clogged, loosen the filler cap, and see if that helps
2: Fuelpump and ECU relays on the front bulkhead. These are generic relays, go down to Halfords and buy a couple of new ones.
Now, here comes the more expensive options;
3: Engine temperature sender, it can be found on the intake plenum (AFAICR)
4: Throttle position sender.
I hope this helps.... If not youre looking at serious (read expensive) problems.
