now it the engine has died without warning.On each occasion the car has
restarted without any problem and has run normally for 2 or 3 weeks.The

Definitely sounds like the ignition switch. There was a massive recall
for that not long ago. Don't know if UK cars were part of the recall, but
that's most likely what the problem is.

Been there--my problem turned out to be the in- tank fuel pump. Inlet
screen was very clogged and occasionally restricted fuel flow to the point
the engine would die (no restart problems)

Battery cables are not tight.

Ah, then you're right--if it's just the engine and not everything, then
it's not the battery connections.

---------------------------

Use google.com to search 'honda ignition switch recall' It happens
suddenly, no warning. It doesn't start to sputter or anything. Just
dead, wherever you happen to be driving. Restarts fine. VERY DANGEROUS.
Fuel filter will start to choke while passing or climbing hill and give
you warning.

It could be the ignition coil. They can be intermittent and cut out
suddenly. Cool down, open circuit closes, presto, they work again.

Yes--The engine would start to cut out without any warning. Nerve wracking
when in the passing lane with an 18 wheeler right on your tail.
