haha how on earth would a radiator cause it you fool :p

swap relays like the ecu relay for a known good one
check ecu for water ingress
if none of them work, go out and buy rac recovery lol

could be problem inside the dissy, i thinky you can buy the repair kits of ebay now, well you could a few weeks ago

would you look at that i even got you a link to them http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NISSAN-MICRA-K11-1-1-1-3-ELECTRONIC-DISTRIBUTOR-KIT_W0QQitemZ120152544087QQihZ002QQcategoryZ10402QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

i thought it maybe the radiator because it only seemed to start once i let the engine cool down lol

cheers for the info.

Yes it sound like it could be shutting down to prevent overheating damage... Is the fan working? The fan on my friends Clio has gone, and he has to be careful because if it overheats it shuts itself down for a while...

check gearbox oil too... low or no oil can trigger sensors to shut down the car
check petrol sensor too... could be intermittment...

hook it up and read the fault codes basically.. and let us know..
