So did this just 'happen'? What were you doing at the time? Working on the car? Driving along the road? Starting car in the morning? Washing the engine?

Have you checked the the inlet tract is clear (take off the inlet piping) and the throttle assembly work correctly? Also does a normal amount of gas come out of the exhuast when the engine does run? No hissing or pressure building up noises from the exhaust?

Can you check the ignition timing with a timing light, same with fuel pressure?

Check all engine related electrical connections and wiring for problems.

Do you know how to check cam timing?

Ok, the list of things that could cause this is very long. Without certain pieces of diagnostic equipment you are going to struggle to accurately diagnose the problem. Therefore you are looking at a 'swaptronics' approach of putting best guess parts on the car to see if they cure the problem. Which you have said you (rightly) don't want to do. I'm afraid it's impossible to say those symptoms means it's a XYZ or whatever.

I would probably recommend booking it in with a decent recommended workshop to fix, as they will have the knowhow and the facilites to make an accurate diagnosis.
