hi there i have had my soul tempest crd 1.6 now for 3 years and in that time its been great but recently its been feeling down on power , however if its town driving its not noticeable

the problem arises when you accelerate to overtake on the motorway the car dies and engine cuts out .
however if you depress the clutch . turn off the ignition and re start the car it always starts again instantly ..i have done this in lane 3 at 70 mph and obviously this isnt good for many reasons . i have also coasted to the hard shoulder were the car starts again first time every time .

it has no warning lights showing and shows nothing with a scan with a fault code reader .
its getting that i am driving it with almost no accelerator to avoid the engine cutting out .

has anyone had anything similar

It sounds like fuel starvation. If the fuel tank is venting properly then checking fuel pressure would be the next step.

Culprits could be pump and/or filter.

Not indicating that these are the only possibilities but are first on my mind.
