Hi.

I've got a 09 Kuga TDCI 4wd. Had it a few months and noticed that when pulling up to traffic lights or dropping down gears to turn a corner the engine cut out. Radio etc stayed on and it didn't stall. It happened 3 times on one journey then the engine malfunction warning came on.

Sent it back to the garage and the cleaned the egr, changed oil and filter. 3 weeks later it started again. Engine malfunction warning came on so sent it back again. This time the cleaned the egr valve & defuser housing, checked waste gait operation, cleaned maf sensor and throttle housing.

picked it up had a good run back then pulling up to a roundabout it cuts out again! travelled another 50yards, dropped it into 2nd to turn a corner and it cut out again.

Garage picked it up the next day but have called to say they can't find a fault. They have test driven it 4 times and it hasn't faulted so that's it.

Anyone else had these issues - please help!!
