    Engine cutting out...

    Hi Folks

    Grateful for any help with a problem on my 1998 A6 2.8Q tip saloon: On a couple of occasions after a long run the engine has cut out when slowing down to a crawl (eg for a slow manoeuvre like a tight corner). The engine starts again no problem after cutting out.

    Car is regularly serviced, and additionally has had a brand new MAF fitted and the throttle body cleaned in the past few months to fix a problem where the engine would occasionally cough when under load. (Although this problem is not totally cured as the engine still coughs once in a while.)

    Has anyone any suggestions as to what might need attention to fix the cutting out problem? Ive checked for engine fault codes with VAG-COM but none are registered.

    Thanks!

    Cheers - Graham
