hello all

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction

Yesterday while driving my BA V8 3 valve the engine light came on and the engine stopped. I pulled over to the side of the road turned the ignition off then turned it back on and started the car. I drove home without any problems.

I took the car to a mechanic and he connected the reader and found no fault codes. Driving the car home from the mechanics again the engine light came on and the engine stopped. This happened twice in a 20 minute drive, and again while the car was idling when i got home. Every time i turned off the ignition and then the car started straight away.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Craig

I have had this on mine a couple of times and it was usually the PCV line that runs from the front RH rocker cover either gets a split (vacume leak) or one of the vacuum lines pops off the back of the block!
