So my car every now and again, usually in low gear keeps cutting out or trying to stall, although usually if I give it some throttle and change gear it jolts a bit but keeps on going. However when idling it will often just cut out for no reason and I have to start the engine with a bit of throttle.

I personally think it's a fuel feed problem, maybe shit in the tank but it used to be worse when I had a ramair cone filter on it but I've since gone back to the original air box.

Any ideas? Past experiences that sound similar? Thanks in advance :)

  • My 36 did this before I totaled it, check your rocker cover gasket, oil coils be grounding out your plugs

  • Could be a air leak if it's cutting out when idling

  • It will be ticking over lovely then suddenly starts stuttering and cuts out, it's happened 2 or 3 times while moving but usually when parking. If it happens while moving at speed I can counteract it and keep going but with a jolt. Almost like switching into first suddenly

  • Yeah mine did the same

  • Yup mine had a air leak was doing exatly the same

  • OK thanks, I'll bear that in mind. Might be worth checking the mass air flow sensor before I start searching for leaks
