Re: Damn EA....
1) You have a CPFI car, they have problems. When you turn the key off does it run for a couple of seconds then splatters out. If it does this, your still getting power to your fuel injectors or TFI module on distributor. Check the condition of the 2 relays that are next to the battery under the coolant reservoir. The green one is the fuel pump relay and the other one is your ECU relay. I'd say you will see corrosion on the terminals from leaking coolant( common problem). If so, clean terminals with WD40 etc.
Another thing to check if that looks ok, is if your ignition barrel is worn.
2) Get your radiator flushed and get a new thermostat fitted. Should cost $120 if you ring around a few places. All e-series cars need a radiator flush every 2 years all you could do a head gasket.
3) Your alternator belt is worn, Buy a new alternator belt and put it on . Should cost $15
