    Default vectra 120 cdti engine died suddenly

    Hi. Never had this before Away to pull onto carriageway from slip road and engine cut out completely. Basically as if i had turned ignition of. All lights stayed on dash as if ide just turned on the ignition. Luckily managed to pull to side of road. Tried turning over engine but not firing at all. As if there was no fuel!!! Yes the tank had plenty fuel!!! Started checking fuses that could be related to engine management. About ten mins later after finding nothing i jumped back in and it fired up no problem. Wierd!!!! Never had a problem with car up til now and had it a year. After it started there was no more problems today but dont know why it suddenly cut out. Any ideas as dont want the missus to get into a situation if drivin herself .Any safety cut outs??? .No warning lights came up prior to the cut out but the spanner light came on when it stopped. All appears ok jis now

    How many miles has you car done. The only thing that might stop the car, is the cam or crank sensor.

    Before it cut out there was no warning . I.e. no noises, engine wasnt spluttering, no dash light warnings and basically after sitting for ten minutes it started up and away it went without any problems. This is good but its a mystery why it would just die as if the fuel had been cut. Its jis done 60k and doesnt smoke. Starts no problem every day and runs good fuel consumption so there is nothing obvious to me with my little knowledge. Dont want to send it into the garage yet for them to fleece all my money!!!
