4x4 issues

4x4 issues
Hi all.
Hope your all safe and well.
Posted before on throttle housing issues.
Once lockdown was lifted got car looked at and a replacement one was fitted.
On two separate computer in a local garage, great. all's well!
Two days later car wouldn't start, got the garage to look at it, diagnostic is throwing up issues with coils, plugs and more.
They're trying to source a replacement ECG,this was a few weeks ago, The
Question is... Do I cut my loses and sell for spare or repair or wait till the garage find one eventually.
Car is a 57 panda 4x4, only got it in December 2018 for going back and forward to work. Only had one owner.
Sound advice would really be appreciated.

Hi Jim

Is this petrol..or diesel

In my experience ECUs rarely fail.. unless full of water

They are not complex motors.. where in Scotland are you based?

Hi Charlie.
It's a petrol 1.2.
Had issues when it was under the 3 month warranty, it's was in a different garage for this.
It came back running fine and was good as.
It's cost a couple hundred so far and feeling like it's turning into a money pit.
ECG and connections are dry.
Based in Lanark.
Jim.
