Hi and welcome.

Fuel starvation? How much fuel is in the tank? In either case you really need to get it diagnosed for a fault code. It will be guess work without it. If you have breakdown cover with home start, they should be able to plug in and get any fault codes - when you do pop them up here and we can help you with the problem.
