    It's all good.....I didn't interpret your post as if you were :)

    I presume that you and losh1971 have communicated somewhere else on the forum from his comment "I assumed you too had a V6"

    Can I politely suggest that in the future to avoid any confusion between yourself and other members, that if you want to respond to a specific member that you quote one of their posts and reply
    Explains why I had no idea what you were on about and replied with "It's different to the plug on your 5 litre ? ? ? ? ? ?" when you've quoted my post and your reply was actually meant for another member

    Ute is currently at the mech's workshop getting diagnosed. Funny thing is the issue has not reappeared since the RACT wiggled plugs and poured water on things. I have left the code up in case he wants to run his scan tool. I'm leaning towards an issue with the DFI plug. Since I would have thought if it were DFI module it would have stopped and probably not got going again. I also think if it was the CAS it would have stopped more often in the hot weather than it did. Also considering it's not a very old sensor I'm thinking it's unlikely to be a failing CAS.
    I will pop up the answer once I hear back from the mech later this arvo. That is if he can actually figure out what cause it to stall. If he can't I will clean the plug and fit a new DFI in the next month or so just to be safe.

    Mech checked the DFI plus and all looks good. FPR was working fine as it should. He cleared the history of old codes that obviously I can not as they are nearly a year old and no longer showing up. He said he could not ascertain what the problem was. So basically I need to just drive it and either hope I am in mob range and can get the vehicle towed to him to sort or hope that I can get it started again. Guess the go is to buy a new DFI to have on hand. Apparently the engine is running sweet, so my interpretation of a miss is actually just me, it must be the way the Buick V6s are. In saying that the miss was not bad I just thought it wasn't quite running perfect. So in other words the miss was all in my head.....:oops: And there I guess lies the problem with the VR V6 these cutting out issues are not always easily diagnosed until they have total failure......

    I hope the check by the mechanic did not cost you a cheque ...

    Only 60 bucks. I was thinking $100. Saved me $120-$130 as I thought my FPR might have been shot, turns out it's fine. So not going to replace it now.
