I have an Astra mk4 '03 1.6 8v that I bought recently. I have noticed that sometimes the engine stalls when I am stationary sometimes like when I am waiting at traffic lights. This is even when I hit the pedal and give the engine a normal amount of gas. I try another two times and then it starts. I have to give it more gas. This never happens when the engine starts from cold only after I drive after a while. It doesnt happen frequently. I had the car for 3 weeks and it has happened maybe 4 -5 times. It just feels like the car sometimes wants to switch itself off. As a new driver, is it my driving technique or is it a problem with the car that needs checking? I also notuced the other day the car seems to have difficulty going up a steep slope. It was stalling. Is it the engine size or my driving or a problem with the car?
Thanks in advance.
