Help needed please - Intermittent cutting out


I am hoping that people here may be able to help me. My mother owns a 1996 2.0 Lusso Spider and it has developed an intermittent problem.

It went in for a cambelt service and the following day it developed a fault - this could be unrelated, but worthy of mention perhaps.

The car develops a hiccup - accelerating up to 2000 revs, it cuts out. Usually, it cuts out and then takes off again, but sometimes it cuts out and just stops. It can then be restarted but the problem persists.

The garage have had the car back and can't find any faults - the diagnostics show no problems apparantly. The fuel injection, timing have been checked and are OK.

Any suggestions as to what the fault could be will be gratefully received.

Many thanks in advance,

Reckon it may be MAF related - do a quick search on the forum for "MAF" and youo' find loads of threads. Best thing to do is to locate it (find a thread with a pic) and disconnect it when you next have a problem and see if the problem goes. Don't drive with it disconnected for too long though.

MAFs are about 150ish and an easy DIY fit.
