Q: Engine cutting out whilst coasting

asked by on

Hi there, I drive a semi auto car. Often, I take my foot off the pedals and coast at a slow speed, but when I put my foot back on the accelerator, the engine cuts out. The car then wont move until I restart the engine. Is this normal or is there a problem with my car? Thanks for your help
