1st I woud like to thank for all the help that I have received,

I have tried the solution that I had received, but the car still has problems.

I have been told that the alternator maybe faulty and that I could test it by using a Multimeter?

Can someone give me an idea as to where abouts in the engine this is located as i am unsure

Hi, Lift the bonnet and it should be on the left hand side of the engine about half way down as you look at it. The alternator is normally about the same size as a half loaf of bread, has a belt running off it and wires coming out. You should also be able to see the generator wires inside it too.
To be honest i would get an auto-electrician to test it as he will know exactly what he is looking for.

you can also test the charging rate of the alternator by putting the multimeter across the battrey terminals. had a similar problem recently on a 206 of same year. should be charging between 13.50 and 14.50 volts(give or take a bit), with the car running. any less than this, sounds like a new alternator will be needed, if unsure seek a garage, its quite a straight forward job to check.

As far as cutting out is concerned i would have a look inside the fuel filter for signs of metal particles, this is evidence of the high pressure pump failing, normally resulting in a whole new fuel system. Usual cost is around £1800

I had this problem and it was a loose wire on one of the engine plugs
