Yes I have checked vacuum pipes, no sign of water around MAP sensor , Have taken out TDC sensor and cleaned connections seem ok. As to was it raining yes it was raining when I test ran the car and thought I had cured it. Fault seems to be less evident when the weather is wet, quite the oppisite to what you would expect. Another thing I forgot to metion Rev counter jumps around just before engine dies, but with no change in engine tone. do you think this is a electrical problem.

cheers marty
