    Shuddering etc

    We have an Astra 1.6 8v Automatic (03)..every now and again the car shudders, and on 3 occasions the car has cut out, but started straight away, The AA said it MIGHT be the crankshaft sensor, but diagnosis could not find anything wrong,any ideas please??

    when my crankshaft sensor was buggered the car cut out a couple of times - it wouldnt start though

    i think the coolant temperature sensor also causes stalling.

    do you have any fault codes - do a search on here for the pedal test or paperclip test

    Sounds like throttle body, take it off and clean it.

    well the juddering could be just a lack of oil.... my sisters automatic had the same but never stalled

    Do what Sam666 says if you've already checked the oil level. Though you don't have to take it off to clean it
