Gas ecu indeed?
So check any removed connections, poor wiring joins could cause an issue.
I'd go back to the mechanics and tell them what you know now, should be easier to track down

have you taken the dizzy out and checked its bush ? i've had similar dramas with a worn dizzy. and can you get hold of some heat sink paste ? make sure there's plenty on the back of the module.

found one issue with the car that could be part of the cause, i pulled the fuel filter out and drained it there was little pieces of what looked like solder slagg, so i pulled the fuel pump out and there was some stuck int he guts of the pump, cleaned them both up drained the tank and flushed all the crap out, put some clean fuel in useing a funnel with a strainer, went for a drive it runs a little better but still not 100%,

the pump, filters, and reg was all replaced, the solder in the fuel tank was a new thing thats just occured, i had the tank cleaned when i done the fuel pump, so the solder has obviously come from the servo, and thins wouldnt be the first time ive had dirty fuel, i filled the drum for the mower up and there was about 1 cm of what looked like mud and rust in the bottom of the fuel can which was brand new. think i orta go to a different servo from now on.
