Recently I have been having some issues with my Mazda Capella 2000 occasionally just switching off while I am at low revs. It doesn't often happen but when it does it seems to happen multiple times in a row.
Always happens at low revs, it happens while driving during things like stopping at an intersection or slowing down to turn into a driveway. It gives no warning when it stops, it just switches off, No choking noises like the engine is having trouble or any other indication that it is going to happen. The battery light turns on (like it is before you start the engine) and when I start the engine it always starts again straight away (but the problem often persists for awhile and if you don't rev it it will switch off again).
Doesn't seem to make a difference whether the car is hot or cold. I thought that perhaps it might happen when I park on a slope but this might be coincidence as parking on a slope doesn't always seem to cause the issue.
Any thoughts on what could possibly be going on?
If you have any questions please let me know.
