Just have a lil drama that i cant fault, last night after a short drive, im sitting at the lights and the vq stalls. Crank it, it starts then i let it back to idle and it cuts again. This morning i start her up, misses for about 5 seconds then comes good.. After another trip i pull into a carspace and drop it to idle. And it cuts again. No splatter just strait out.. Im thinking its something playing up at running temp?

Next Id check for vacuum leaks.It might be that a vacuum hose has come off somewhere around the engine..There is also a vacuum reserve tank under the left front guard up in behind the bumper.It looks like a black plastic ball,check its vacuum line.Ive seen a few of these vacuum hoses split or come off here, as its all exposed to the bottom of the car near the wheel.Also the brake booster can be another cause of a vacuum leak.
