2006 Vauxhall Astra 1.8 design Engine cut out


Problem added: Apr 20, 2008 (12 years ago)
In the last couple of weeks occasionally when I start the car the engine starts normally then immediately cuts out. I have to turn the ignition off, wait, count to 10 and then try again - so far it then starts fine and runs OK. Seems to be getting more frequent now.
