confused EA II 4/1991 Intermittent stopping HELP A1 Otherwise

This car has had a lot of work to find why it keeps just "dropping dead" anywhere at any time then can not be started for equally varying lengths of time 3/4 to 1 1/2 hours plus for three times today.

Please help as Ford Locals want $80-90 Hr and say they may need 2-3 days to track it downbut at $2K who wants to do that?

Re: EA II Intermittent stopping

Blocked fuel filter (or tank inlet if the filter sock has fallen off or disolved). Try changing the filter first and see what gunk or rubbish comes out of the old filter. Something blocks the inlet line, the engine stops, pumps stops and blocking item goes back down the inlet line or falls back into tank; you start up again and the process continues.

Fuel filters were changed last Sept and twelve months earlier and both times filter was OK

Have not checked tank inlet as far as we know THANKs BLUE
