engine cut out

hi i was wondering if anyone has had this before and if anyone could tell me what the problem maybe

i was driving along this morning and when coming up to the roundabout i put the clutch down to change down gear and the engine cut out completely. after struggling to get it to the side due to the power steering going down due to the engine cutting out i could not get the car to start again. the starter motor was turning the engine over but the engine would just not fire up. after about 30 mins waiting for a breakdown truck o tried to start the engine again and it started normally and has been running fine since.

has anyone had this before or would anyone be able to give me a few clues of where to start looking 1st

cheers darren

Re: engine cut out

I had a very similar problem and mine turned out to be the above plus faulty variator.
