Hi everyone,


Hope someone can help here...

Really strange thing started happening Friday on the motorway. Felt the car misfire (or something) while driving along, that was odd but the car kept driving ok.
When I came to the toll bridge and started to gear down, the car lost power while pressing the clutch down between 5th -> 4th and 4th -> 3rd. While clutch was down (and power loss) a couple of lights came up on dash but disappeared when the clutch was released and car was back in gear.
Needing to stop, I tried to gear from 3rd to 2nd but this time the car died completely, the lights stayed on, car wasn't recoverable and couldn't gear into 2nd, car lost all power and rolled to a stop.
Car wouldn't start for 2 or 3 minutes. After leaving it for 2 or 3 minutes the car started no bother and didn't cause any trouble for the rest of journey.

On the way home on Sunday this happened 3 more times while coming back down the motorway.


Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Thanks in advance to all who respond.

Need diagnostic but most likely the cam or crank sensor breaking down or possibly a bad earth
