biggrin stalling problem finally solved!!!!!

As you are well aware i have made a few posts about my ea cpi 4spd auto stalling on me. I tracked the problem down to the fuel supply being cut off because after replacing all the ignition items the problem still happened. I removed the cover over the fuel pump in the boot and what do you know it was caked to the top with gravel and dirt. The 12v connector and fuel sender were both totally packed full of dirt thus making poor connections, hence fuel supply problems and the incorrect fuel level on the gauge. Cleaned out with vacume cleaner and sprayed with crc. The car seems to have a lot better throttle response now and the fuel gauge is now showing the right level and flicks up to that level twice as quick as before. I am happy as this problem has frustrated me for over 1 year now???

Thanks for the update. It seems the more modern the car, the more likely electrical faults will be causing the problems.
