Rach's mont is playing up right when we don't need it. We are down to one car so if it dies we're stuffed.

The car will cut out for no reason whatsoever.. driving along and bang, not acceleration or response then suddenly it comes back. Did it to Rach a couple of weeks ago, did it to me last night and then again 2 more times to Rach on the way to work.

Whatever the hell it is it is getting worse. Just need ideas on where to look caused I am lost for them at the moment.

J3 Chip?

Because the J3 I have in my car must be on its way out because unless its sitting perfectly in the ECU, it will just cut out while I'm driving and then come straight back 0.5 sec later. Sounds similar to your issue? If so I just pulled to chip out and cleaned the contacts like crazy (metho, sandpaper etc) and now it randomly does it when I turn the ignition on.

OF course this only helps if you have a J3, otherwise sorry!

Nah, she's a rock stock EF Mont.

Fixed it now anyway, was the fuel pump. Kept failing and hitting the tank got it going often enough times to get home for replacement.
