hi all... i have just had a new alternator fitted to my car , since this has been fitted i have had to replace a fuse block and the fuses within it because the guy who fitted it didnt disconect the battery and caused the alternator to short on the block, anyway the car now has developed a new problem, when the car has warmed up it seems to want to cut out like there is no fuel getting to the engine or something, i have checked the fuses and relays but they all seem to be fine, anyway , when the car starts to cut out the gauges go mad and say that i have no fuel, so i pull over switch off the engine start it back up and all is fine again. this problem is somewhat annoying as i cant go anywhere without almost breaking down...... plz plz plz if any1 out there has had same problem or might know what is causing this problem plz let me know either by posting here or sending me an email to shanehowell@ntlworl.com and would be most greatfull with any info you might have .... THANKS
