Hi redlinegti, I'm jubes.

I have been on here looking for info for years just never joined until now.

I need some guidance with a issue I have with intermittent stopping. The car just stops randomly while driving. I have checked all the earths, it runs sweet when its going but then just stops.

I'm thinking faulty computer or dizzy/cam angle sensor but not sure.

Any help/guidance welcome

Cheers

Does it still run the factory MAF?
If do, check that the wiring for it isn't stretched, frayed or stripped that the plug connector is both clean and secure.
If it's a fuelling issue, try a different alternator, they have a diode built in for safety that cuts out the fuel pump if it senses alternator not running.
Those are the two Most mysterious issues I've encountered.
Next would be disconnect tps to run in limp mode (if it runs without fault it's tps issue)
Next would be check the temp senders on the head, a friend of mine recently had running issues due to primary temp reference for ecu being open circuited.
Inspect inside of dizzy cap for contamination etc etc
