Smile Engine cutting out

I am hoping someone will be able to help?! i have a 1998 a-class which has been cutting out as i slow down towards junctions etc. There is a loss of power which causes the engine to stall, occassionally it will not completely cut out and the power will return although this does cause a rather embaressing shake! When it stalls the engine will restart straight away. It has done this in the past but stopped and i wonder if it is connected to the hotter weather, i am at a loss, the last garage i took it too were usless. Thanks

Not much to work on here....

Why not share some details about the car? There are lots of variants of the A class.

Engine type number? Petrol? Diesel? Turbo? Mileage? Does it start OK? Tick-over normal? Manual/auto? Any error messages? Regularly serviced?

Also there is a dedicated forum for A class queries.

Check your Electrical Pack. Somehow I suspect it's that.
Mine was similar. Mine was located at the top, where the Spark Plugs are.
Electrical Pack was fried. Replaced it for <$100.00 by an Indy Mechanic and
so far in 3 years it has not come back.
I bet your Code will indicate something like a P04000?(guess-timate).
