MG TF cutting out

hello i have recently bought an MG TF 135 Sprint and the other day was driving down the street and approaching a junction the engine just died. (no misfire stuttering just stopped!!!!) started the car and the next time i was coming to a stop the engine did the same. seems to be just as the engine revs get down to idle speed it just stops. Once i started it again problem disappeared however coming home from work today same fault occurred again and resolved itself as soon quick as it appeared. Any help on this would be great.

Alan

If you are unsure of its location, on the sticky hints/tips there is a run-down of sensor locations.
You could try cleaning it with carb cleaner before replacing it though.
