Some one else had the same problem on this forum. Some explinations given could have been caused by Smartlock imobiliser brakedown or fuel
pump getting old, spark plug leads,spark plugs, check the contacts in the distributor cap and rotor, it may even be the stator motor. If its been a while replace the spark plugs and check contacts in the distributor cap first as they are the cheepest, if the fuell pump is giving up (a common problemwith cars this age) then check out prices on performance pumps over standard. Another thing you could check although it shouldnt happen is maybe a loose connection in a wiring plug or battery terminal, may even be the battery get a free battery test.
