Hello guys my EBII is Stalling while im driving, sometimes i can start it straight away other times it takes forever.
She cranks but wont start it sounds like i have spark but i have no way of testing, but it does fire up after a while.
Also my car stalled the other night and it was as if the battery was dead when i tried to start, BUT the lights were ok the stereo was on and every aspect was fine but the starting, and now every time i try and put a fuse in the stupid windscreen wiper slot it blows, has any one got an idea?

You can check for spark yourself. Grab one of the leads and plug a spark plug in there and ground the end of the spark plug to the body, crank the engine and see if there is spark, if it is weak (yellow and small).

I'm going with Ignition coil. Check all cabling that is to do with the ignition system.

Cheers
Josh.

Just don't touch any of the body while doing it to be safe ;)

Could be a fuel issue, how is the idle?

Does any one think J3 chip? the RAA said distributor but that was just a guess, it started when he was there so he couldnt test it. But TFI and distributar to be replaced he said
