    main relay if it just freakin quit on you with no symptoms, and if the weather is an extreme (cold, humid).

    ignition module in the distributor if you had rpm fluctuations like a nervous tic and then it went all nuts on ya.

    just based on my previous experiences...

    but basically over the course of a week id try to start the car and it would idle at 1k very rough then die...or it would start and rev to 4k all by itself...i know the car has vacuum leak somewhere...but the ignition has been wierd,,so im leaning more towards dizzy,,but i figure i get more opions
