I have had three Peugot 309 diesels and they all did this intermitantly. It usually happened when I was changing down gears. The engine would just cut out but start again immdeiately with the momentum of the car.
I asked a few mechanics about it and they all seemed baffled. I ignored the problem and it just seemed to go away.<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
