Hi, on two separate occasions now at the same spot (KFC drive-thru window), the car is idling in neutral for awhile, then splutters for no reason and dies.

Then when i go to start it, its a bit hesitant, then runs for a few seconds like its on 2 cylinders.

Its done this a couple times now and am worried its got something to do with my timing as it never used to do this before i had my timing kit installed....

Any ideas?

i will mention last time it did it, i gunned it thru a couple gears shortly before i pulled up at KFC (where it died)

Also, the first few minutes of a cold start the car shudders & jumps like the clutch is slipping..... could be related problem?

had brand new injectors and coil pack fitted few months ago.

all this has started since i had a new timing kit fitted, and ive had the rocker cover off and checked that the cam gear mark & balancer mark line up.

Only the first few minutes of a cold start it shudders, never did that before.... i expect that from an old carbie vehicle but not a 95 model?
