moment then cut out and wouldnt start again. Its

check the voltage...and the amperage too~ ECU will actually "brown out" with reduced voltage and become unreliable~ so the black cable connecting to the block also ground the ignition system...if it's weak...or power weak, spark may become not as strong as it should ...so BEEF UP the power to the coil pack...where it's mounted~...possibly will bring the show back in service~

Make sure ur getting fuel pressure to see if it's fuel related. If u got gas, do a compression check before replacing any other parts
