We have taken this car to an auto electrician but is currently back there.
The fuel pump was replaced and also the distributor.
As soon as the car is switched on the engine runs and the idling needle drops right down it will not do anything after that.
Whether the auto electrician is a pro I have no idea but he comes well recommended.
We are based in RSA Gauteng Jhb and rely on your expert advice.
Kind regards Tammy

Those initials may mean something to the people in your area but they mean nothing to me here in the US. I have no idea where you are located.

If your car is completely dead and will remain that way long enough to do some testing, then any qualified tech should have no trouble finding out why. There are basic testing procedures to isolate the cause that he should know.

Hi there, yes I laughed it off.
Maybe we should seriously consider breaking the bank ant and take the car to a RMI accredited repairer nearby.
Again many thanks
Tamara
