Engine Randomly Cut off, Wont restart.
Oh dear. My SE has had it again!
Right so the story, driving home on, the car hesitated twice only briefly. I ignored and pressed on.
Nearly home on the motor, engine instantly cut out. I immediately coasted, and pressed the accelerator several times in disbelief, no life in the engine.
I stopped and attempted to restart. It started for a second and then died. And would not start again.
Had to be towed home. (Thank god for AA cover)
My bets are on either Fuel Pump or the Dizzy. I have no real tools at home so I cant check either yet.
What do you guys think?
dizzy! Look at the how to on pulling codes
OK ill do this tomorrow as well.
If the dizzy is faulty, will it still produce a spark?
generally not, but not as a rule. Do you still have spark?
Marco you where not wrong. After a trip to Oxfordshire, a TOT57 dizzy from a probe went straight in, and fired up!
So i may invest in another cheap one to have as spare. The Formula Ford "Engine man" says that these types of Dizzy's are a frequent problem just dying.
i thinks its time for a HEI and External coil mod….
Mod info above.
