hi i'm having a very strange problem with my ea.it runs beautiful until i turn it off then it wont start again until its cooled down. We've changed the ecu, initiated self test,base idle, base timing is set. replaced ignition module, coil. ht leads are all fine. tested ac switch,power steering switch, air ram sensor coolant sensor, fuel filter, fuel intake, fuel pump is working.operating temp normal.
when the problem occurs we can get the car to start by manually advancing distributor but cant work out why distributor is retarding. very frustrating can anyone HELP!!

When you say wont start a asume it cranks ova, have you checked fuel (had a lazy fuel relay once) what about spark? coil might be failing and when was your last service?

yes it does crank over. We've checked the fuel, the coil was just replaced, we're getting good spark. it hasn't had a service as such but hubby is a panel beater so its maintained regularly also no error codes come up on diagnostic.
