it could be the egr valve but to be sure you need to get the car scaned

I am experiencing exactly the same problem. They`ve changed the cam shaft sensor, then diagnostics came up with air mass meter. They changed that and I still have the same problem.

It drives fine for a while then cuts out with no warning? Can anyone help please as it`s starting to prove costly.

i had the same problem with my corsa b, and i know it is a different car but its worth a try, i changed the crankshaft sensor, and all sorted, but i just changed the spark plugs and oil etc just to be on the safe side
