This has been an ongoing problem for a few months now. The engine will completely cut out and turn off when I accelerate. The problem comes and goes. It has to be driven for about fifteen minutes or so before the problem appears, as if it happens either when the car is warm or when I have been accelerating, braking. Accelerating, braking. I have taken to 3 different mechanics and no 1 of them could find what's causing this problem. Please help.

Check fuel pressure with a gauge when that happens may be low pressure. We dont' have tha tmodel in U.S. So these figures may not be correct but it should have 38psi at idle w/vacuum an d47-50 w/o vacuum if not near that then that may be your problem.
