Hi there , good evening to you and sorry for the delayed response

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you Tonight

ok does the van cut out completely or does it go into a limp home mode driving situation

Does the exclamation (!) powertain light come on at all or is it just the glow plug light that flashes

Does this happen on hard acceleration or is there no pattern to the fault

Kindest regards ***** *****

Brian
