does it just stop dead or does it splutter a bit first? if it splutters get your fuel pressure checked I had a fuel pump in my ED that gave similiar problems to what your having.

I'don't see it being the ECU I'd be getting your fuel pump looked at.

so i tried another computer. died again.
this is f**k s**t me.
im going to put a test light in the car so next time she conks out i can try to diagnose the problem...
what should i check for and what wires should i test? the ones going into the coil? where else? I suppose i will need another person to help me so they can turn the key while i check it right???

Also would there be an error code on the computer? i havent had a chance to check but what do u think the ods are of an error code?

shes going up on the hoist to get everything checked this saturday coz i wanna get this sorted out before anyone buys it.

PLZ HELP!! :S
