I hope you're all well?
A bit of advice please, as I have had a search through the forum for this but have not found anyone else having this issue.
Took my 40 out this morning to have a small wheel refurb (local garage damaged the centres using a breaker bar and too short an extension). I got about 100 yards from my driveway when it just cut out. It was under load, not idling, travelling at around 25-30mph. There was no warning, no sputtering, just cut out.
I pulled over, gave it a minute and restarted. She started like nothing had happened and ran as sweet as ever.
However, she then did this again within a mile or so. Given that I had a reasonable journey to make on Essex's finest dual carriageway, I decided to bring her home rather than chance playing the sudden death game.
Both times though, no warning, no hesitation, just cuts out.
Hi Daz , mine did this a few years ago & was very intermitant , but after alot of serching , swearing & finaly having to be recovered back home i found it to be the fuel pump , mine being an early car , had an external pump & when it cut out i gave it a tap with a screwdriver & on it came again . I ended up replaceing the pump & all has been ok since . Hope this helps , Paul .
