crease, yours is a 1.6 driver aint it?

if so, you be having carb freeze my son

its no myth, the evaporation of the fuel as its sprayed into the carb drops the temp to the point where any moisture in the air freezes and causes the jets to get blocked with frost

then when you leave it 5 min and its fine is because the heat of the engine melts it

when it happens again, just take your airbox off and feel the carb and how cold it is and you will understand

have you got an after market induction kit? or has the warm air feed from the manifold been removed? if its the second then refit it and itl be fine, thats what its there for
