    pinking thru gears plus cutting out - help

    hello, car is 2002 1.6 16v astra - 35k miles. The car has been pinking immediately after changing up a gear. It has also cut out twice under normal driving. The engine will restart after up to a minute of turning over but initially not firing. After restart it is driving fine but still pinking. This happened over the weekend after filling up with fresh fuel (coincidence or not!) Ta John

    BP premium unleaded - do not usually go there. I can see the fuel causing pinking- -but cutting out !! not sure. Someone suggested crankshaft sensor.
