You missed the point of Tyson's message.  If it is the coil, the =
ignition module, etc, it is likely a symptom that is heat related.  This =
would explain why your car runs for a bit, then stops, then starts again =
once the faulty component cools off.  I had a electronic ignition module =
do this, others have seen similar occurances with the coil.  The Flash =
Test won't tell you when you have an intermittant spark.

it if just drops dead, it's most-likely ignition.  If the car (and

Thanks for the suggestion though ole chap.
