The car is cutting out
Ok the first step would be to have fault codes read from car to find out why car is cutting out . It could be that the fault it causeing cutt out or that the engine control system is cutting car to protect itself . Is car petrol or diesel ?

Diesel
Ok in most cases this is the engine control system shutting car off due to it not trusting the fuel pressure reading . When was fuel filter last changed

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
If I remember correctly it was just before I purchased it 5 years ago
Ok it's highly likely this is your cause . These filters block up and cause your type of issue I would have this replaced before going any further
