Hi there, randomly when im driving around the car will cut out, to describe it it feels like it pulls you in, in other words something electrical i think it may be. i let it cool down for a min, make sure leads are in properly & it still persist. As i said i bought new leads & a new coil pack. im not very car minded but that just what the bloke said it needed who i bought it off & yea its still happening. someone said something about a new dizzy but just after other peoples opinions or ppl who have or know of the same issue.

Also looking to sell a steering wheel & some wheels. ill post photos of the steering wheel & wheels. & also after someones opinion on what they are worth & what the car would be worth also as ill post picks of it up aswell. thanks.

It could be a number of different things, dizzy, AFM, EFI Computer, faulty fuel pump, bad earth, a multitude of things.

Whats needed is some trouble shooting when the problem occurs.

Check to see if you have spark, fuel, make sure you check spark before fuel :)

Depending on your location I might be able to help you out, also I have a stack of EFI 202 bits stored away.
I might be interested in the wheels also. Might be able to do a deal on all the possible parts required to sort your car out

Hi there, VKberlina pretty much summed it up. At a guess I think it's the AFM.

On another note, what area are you in? That last photo, are you selling a set of Calais rims?

Thanks, Dean.

I had similar issue with my 202" a few years back.
fix: repair main wire off the back of alternator, so now it runs power through all strands of the wire (about 15-20ish) instead of 3-5 strands only.

It would pay for you to check that in case your issue is similar.
