dizzy, battery but I'm assuming it turns over so most likely the distributor, these are a regular service item

Bad coil, bad distributor, bad cap, bad HT lead to distributor.
If it has ECU controlled ignition bad ECU or bad crank sensor.

My engine spun over .And i did all i could to get it to start .I purchased an EXL weeks before it refused to start. So i fitted it ,still no start .You name it,and i did it .So now it was time for auto sparks to pay a visit . He found that the immobiliser had packed up . Only started after it was removed . But before the engine would spin over but it would not start .By the way for other users with the EZL .The time as never been better to pick a EZL up as soon as you can , as the price of these items are on the up and up .Your looking at anything up to 400 for this part .
