It could be a number of things mate, first thing is probably the idle speed control valve, these are prone to play up on your car. The problem is everythink is electronically controlled on your engine.....

When you say everything cuts out, do you lose all electrics or just ignition?

I mean do the headlights flash off etc, or do the ignition lights come on and the car stalls?

my mate had a 2L cav (not red top) that did the same thing and it was his EGR valve the base had rusted through so it was wobbling side to side

It's here:

(Outlined in green, connecting pipes in blue and red).

and looks like this:



Take it out and give it a proper clean with some carb cleaner, and then oil it properly.

If it idles high, undo the locking nut on the bottom, and adjust the idle stop screw. BTW, the jubilee clips face downwards, so you might have to get under the car to undo them, they're a ******* to remove.
