It certainly could be, but I wouldn't jump to that conclusion so quickly. Leave such diagnosis' to the pros, who often zero in on the most expensive component without proper troubleshooting.

Typically, troubleshooting would start with seeing if you can get a spark at the spark plug. Then work back from that (assuming the starter is turning the engine over properly). This means spark plug, leads, disributor cap, distributor rotor, electrical continuity to the distributor and coil. About the last thing on the list is the (expensive) ECU.

Not familiar with this car, but first you have to find the power wire to the switch-that will be one end of your jumper wire. Use a test light clipped to ground, turn key to on, and probe all the wire cavities till you find the hot wire to switch. Now pull out on the electrical connector and see if you can see the two wires going down to driver's door motor. Then see where they connect to the connector. When you touch the jumper wire end to one, it will be for either up or down, and the other motor wire when connected to hot jumper wire will be the opposite, either down or up.
If window is all the way up, jumping hot to up side will make no noise, and cause nothing. So you try the other motor wire to see if motor makes window go down. See, you have to jump hot wire to both to verify the motor works or not.

after read up on this engine fitted im guessing its an automatic. there are a few things to check
first is to check the MAF sensor. unplug it and start engine. if it revs after being removed then it could be this.
other one is the D don't use it place it in number 1 and see if the revs go up and vehicle moves.
the other is the throttle sensor. is there any change on the movement of the engine while moving the accelerator, does the engine change sounds etc.
