Hello people, please help me
Arthur, 1988 Mini City
In January, I was turning off a roundabout in 2nd gear, on a slight incline, when I realised the engine had cut out - no power, when I looked at the dash the ignition light was on. No noise / stalling, had just cut out. Started the engine, went on my way, nothing like it has happened since, until today.
I was changing lanes, in 2nd again, and also a really small incline, when he kind of jumped / hicupped - looked down, ignition light was on, but engine had recovered and I was still moving.
Any ideas of what this might be about?
May or may not be relevant so I'll mention - he runs at a temperature somewhere between cold and middle after getting to the normal line (which as a separate issue, I'm about to try to sort out with thermostat / temperature sender). But it's so intermittent - and today was ten minutes after I started the engine, but in January was during a 2 hour journey, that it feels like this might not be related in any way.
Thanks in advance.
