Matiz cuts out at lights
My car keeps cutting out when I come to slow down but will start straight after. This happens more when engine is hot. I have changed the plugs and reset idle with no effect

Well we would suggest the following
1.Check all air/vacuum connections
2.Check all electrical connections /wiring to the ECU (engine management system)
3.Check the IAC (idle air control valve)
4.Check the HO2S (heated oxygen sensor)
5.Check out the ECU itself
