    ok its p*ssing me off now my car

    my problem is it keeps cutting out at junctions/lights when i stop


    as i approch the lights,car infront, junction etc i dip the clutch and place in first gear and as the car stops it judders and cuts out like its stalled i restart the car and it judders then cuts out again unless i keep the revs up high. now i changed the rocker cover gasket a few weeks ago and changed the leads and not plugs will this help or is it one of 2 other things


    Air flow sensor/Oxygen sensor or could it be the flywheel sensor??? need your help guys as i need to know what its going to cost as im skint at the moment

    cheers Kev
