Help required

I was driving to work this morning when the car just cut out and i had engine management warning light, ABS and oil pressure warnings come on. i just let it coast to a standstill.

now it turns over but wont start, ive checked the fuel line, there is fuel getting through to head.

it gets to the point where it wants to start but just wont fire.

im at a loss if anyone has any ideas would be greatful.

Have a look through this forum for posts on the 'crank sensor'. It's a common fault with petrol-engined cars, but seems be creeping into the oil-burners as well...
