    ive done a search but its just 2 broad! i would hopefully like direct answers....

    i got a 1999 1.6 (109k) and the car died out on me whilst driving.

    my electrics are on, the engine turns over - but doesnt fire up.

    its currently being diagnosed....has the fuel pump completely gone?

    the RAC man managed to send electricity to the fuel pump via a fabricated relay of some sort and the car still didnt fire up.

    could anyone help pleasee!

    Thanks In Advance.

    You should be able to hear if the fuel pump is pumping or not

    Check the fuel lines, maybe something has come undone. Also like has been mentioned possibly the crankshaft sensor.
