Engin cuts out

Asked by Christiaan Feb 25, 2013 at 07:30 AM about the Opel Meriva

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 Meriva cuts out when I have driven more than 100km on asphalt road or less on dirt road.  I stop, wait a
few seconds turn the ignition, struggle a bit, but then it fires

s this a all wheel drive? I dont know any opels lately, but i do know this sounds like dry road tourque windup at wheels and heat strain somewhere, ? just guessing wheels must all be same if so

Get the codes read and replace the fuel filter. Have you changed the spark plugs?

I have this car for 4 years and it had been for services, but it always had that problem. There are no codes being given and its a fuel front wheel drive


that old dirt road thing is messin with my mind for answer,I think i got something a heat problem! somewhere too much heat, coil breakdown, or vapor lock the fuel, or fuel tank suction with no vent ? carry on my flend!
