hi,

my engine cuts out at like 20kph. it has done this like 3 times already twice in the same day.

i'd be driving then when i slow down and change gear to 2nd, with my foot still on the clutch and the other tapping the breaks the engine jst cuts out. after that i restart it and all is fine!
this is how at happened all 3 times and always at roughly 20kph

i jst bought the car and it has been idle for past 2 yrs however i did send it for a full service a month ago.

i hav no clue what is wrong and would appreciate any kind of help/advice

If its been sat for 2 years various things may have stuck and/or corroded. Connectors etc...
