Hey guys

My car died today

it coughed to a stop and would not start again. it cranks over fine but just seems like there is no fuel geting to it.

i got it towed home and changed the fuel filter and it was full of s**t.
i have been trying to start it again but it only occasionally fire's but nothing to keep it going.

Any idea's would be great thanks

Is fuel passing the filter? If so look at the fuel reg,

Remove the fuel rail and inspect for blockage; check regulator and rinse all components with metho until they are clean. You'd be surprised what you find in there.
