Hi, has anyone had any issues with car cutting out? Mine started the other day, drove a good 15 mile to shops, then when I fired up to come home,it started fine, but when put into gear to drive it cuts out, it did it about 5 times, but then drove home fine. Been out in it again today, starts first time, but cuts out once every time, then goes fine????

Yes I have had this before, first you need to notice if it is a total electrical failure by seeing if the outside air temperature goes to -18 and takes about 20-30 minutes to read correctly again. Two possible issues are Ghost and low battery voltage. I found that keeping the battery on soak all the time with the Cetek set to AGM battery, we have an EGM battery in the RS, actually cured both faults so I never had the Ghost wiring change done. My Ghost was installed back in March 2017.

In the Mk3, is the fuel filter separate to the fuel delivery module?

Just had a quick look in the previously posted workshop manual which confirms your findings. (y)
