Fiesta engine stalls when braking from speed eg. 60->25mph
I've got a 1996 1.3 Fiesta with 35,000 on the clock. New (to me) engine fitted after camshaft failure about a year ago, done about 10,000 since then.
Just started a new job which requires me to drive, and the car has unexpectedly stalled twice on the exact same spot on different days - coming up to an empty roundabout after just leaving a motorway. This involves braking from about 60ish to around 25ish. The clutch has been down whenever it has happened, as I am in the process of changing down.
There is no obvious change in tone from the engine. On the dashboard, the battery and the oil lights come on and the car stops responding to gas. Also, the brake becomes heavy as if you had turned off the engine.
It has since happened twice more, once in fast moving traffic (slowing) on an A road, which s--t me up somewhat. Most recently I noticed that the actual cut out came as the clutch was down and I had just moved the gearstick into 4th position.
Any ideas what could be causing it?
