:sad1: Hi Guys

Looking for some help here. Have a B10 V8 and I am having a problem where the car just cuts out while driving. It is completley random. One minute you are driving along the next the engine just dies. No lights appear on the dash it just cuts out. I have to stop wait about 30s and then it starts!!!

Any Ideas?:sad1:

COuld be .

Dirty HT lead contacts (Where ht leads connect to power), caused by oil (common to puntos not sure about Alpinas)

Air bubble in oil line/carburettor

Dirty injectors/knackered spark plugs.

These are also the cheapest things to fix :wroom:

I'm no mechanic though, it could be something else.
