    Sudden stall

    Driving along today on cruise control at around 60mph.came to a bit of a hill and the car built it's revs up a bit to stay at speed.suddenly my dv started 1 long dump.then car died.i dropped it through the gears and nothing.but as soon as I stoped and started it it was ok. I noticed that the only light came on was TC light.I remember reading what this means but can't remember what it was.lol.
    Since this happened when im driving easy the dv has done this long dump thing.just when the turbo comes in.

    The car has had a light miss in it and idleing problem for a while now.havnt got round to fixing it yet.

    Idling it would be grand for a wee while then splutter a tad then go ok again.

    The miss comes in 4th/5th gear at speed.80/90mph...

    The car had full service on Thursday.I suspected coil pack.but I've been told air flow meter.

    Also before i bought the car it had turbo replaced.but how can i tell if its a vxr or not?!

    any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    I think I've included all I can here guys

    My old SRi turbo used to do it on the odd occasion. If it 'dumps' with the cruise control on it drops off the cruise control. Never any long term damage though. Which DV have you got? Mine was a bailleys twin piston jobbie.

    The only way I know of to check what turbo it is is to remove the turbo outlet (to the intercooler). If the outlet of the turbo is ribbed, you have a VXR one. If it's smooth with a ridge at the end, standard. There's probably an easier way to tell though.

    Your DV may be sticking though, meaning the long 'dump' and stalling.

    Just so people know Ive been in touch with baileys and they dont do a repair kit. You have to send it back to them and pay £39.99 and they rebuild, polish and check the tolerences of the valve so im told

    Hold both the brake and throttle peddle down then turn on ignition the engine light will start to flash if it constantly flashes then there is no fault codes stored.
    If the flashing pauses then there will be a fault code, count the flashes then look on the Internet to find out what they mean.. 0=10 flashes 1=1 flash 2=2 flashes etc etc there will be a slight pause between each number of flashes.
    So a p1106 will be 1 flash pause 1 flash pause 10 flashes pause 6 flashes.
