If it died slowley it is unlikely to be a cambelt. When trying to start it, does it spin round at the normal speed or is turning over much faster than usual?

It could be the fuel filter, crankshaft sensor or the coil pack. Did it just loose power or did start running lumpy, like it was on 3 cylinders and then 2 cylinders before dying completely.

Hi Carly,

I think BTMaldon meant, as it died (going through the gears) did it feel like it was losing a cylinder at a time? did it feel like it was running rough / lumpy and just slowly going that way, or was it an ever smooth loss of power, almost like you have stalled on the motorway, and are rolling to a stop?
