Switches off while driving 1996


Date:June 13, 2013, 5:19 pm
Name:Johann
Location:South Africa, Western Cape, Cape Town
Vehicle:OPEL Astra
Year:1996
Problems:The car just switches off while driving. Seems worse in traffic, but also happens on freeway. Mechanic doesn't want to commit to diagnosis and says diagnostics won't show fault because it's not consistent. Had 2 guys suggest that it might be the fuel pump.

Hi
recently I have I problem of my opel astra 1992 engine cut off, I checked the fuel feeding the engine it was OK, then checked electrical cable connected to the distributor and their was no electricity then checked electricity from coil also with no electricity so I changed the coil with new used one but the problem remains the same but also in the same time I had glass whipper fuse bellowing off continuously I do not know if it might related to the engine cut off problem or not, please any one can help me in that matter
Thanks

good day i also have the same problem it just started days back, a search i did suggested its either the crankshaft sensor which need to be replaced, the EGR valve which need to be cleaned or a damaged brake savour which blocks air in a way. i need to give these a try. somebody suggested an overheating fuel relay and have already ruled it out as i have bypassed it and it didnt work, just had to wait for the car to cool down then start it again which last sometimes up to 15 minutes. the thing is it only happens when you in low gears after having driven the car for above 30 minutes. 0748259723

Hi please help. I have 2007 model Astra twinport 1.6. The car cuts off power when I apply the lowest gear or neutral while moving. I checked and found that my exhaust manifold cracked but i am not convinced that it's the only problem.
