We were driving along there was a ticking under the dash and the rev counter bounced around and then the car shut off an wouldn't come back on. The engine check light also came on. Also smelled a bit like fish. Car won't start again but it happened once before and after an hour or two it started again fine and continued to work until now. About 1 month apart.

Cheers.

Will the starter engage to crank the engine? If so, have you checked for spark and fuel to the engine?

Yeah cranks fine. No spark though. But after waiting about 20 mins runs fine again no worries.
