I have a 2002 Ford KA and over the last week everytime I slow down to enter a roundabout the engine switches off, at present I have no problems we re starting the car. Any ideas?

This might be a problem with the idle air control valve. This valve controls the idle on your car so when you take your foot off the gas this is the valve that keeps your car running. Sometimes they can be cleaned, but you might have to get a new one. Any good repair shop can diagnose this valve quickly.
