Today the mrs went out in the car on a short journey 4 miles and the glow plug light started to intermitently flash and when it did the car stalled or tried to has anyone got any ideas please?

Will need to plug it into to diagnostic computer and see what fault code it brings up

A flashing glowplug light means a major error and you should pull over immediately.

Intermittent flashing may well be a clogged fuel or air filter.

As stated above, get a diagnostic done as a matter of urgency before something serious rears it's ugly head.

when the light flashes have you got a total loss of power without the engine dieing? if so the most probable cause is likely to be a faulty throttle position sensor that unfortunately does not always show a fault code.

it is an easy enough fix though as all you need to do is the replace the throttle pedal assembly (3 bolts and 1 wiring plug) price can vary from £20 to about £80 / £90 depending if you go for a new or second hand pedal.
