EA - Serious Issues

My brother has an EA CFI that has had serious issues the past few months. While idling (and hot), it occasionally stalls and will not start again for at least 15 min (sometimes less, but normally more). Occasionally it will not start from cold either, normally on a warm day after sitting in the sun all day (it is generally fine in the morning). This has been extremely frustrating and any suggestions would be much appreciated.



My XF: 4.1 carby, genie extractors, 2 1/4 exhaust, 4 speed, lowered, tinted windows, body kit, spoiler, mags + other stuff

Currently missing a set of splits and my gear knob as some bastard stole them! Damn thieves!

Could also be the TFI module on the side of the dizzy.

Re: EA - Serious Issues

To be sure I would be checking out the dizzy first. I had a very similar experience in my NA although it is MPFI. New dizzy and the problem has never re-occurred.

TFI module or dizzy. I had the exact same problem and these were replaced and car ran fine again.
