Distributor help needed!!
« on: 16:21, Sat 06 July 2013 »
Hi all,

My R5GT won't run properly and I need some help :) 

1.  Sometimes the car will idle ok with no problems and then will just stop, when I check the spark plugs they are not getting any power but the main feed to the distributor is.  (After taking plugs out etc and trying again it will randonly start again)

2.  Sometimes it will be idling fine and then it will start running really lumpy and back firing etc. 

What I have tried

Replaced distributor cap and arm.
Checked and cleaned all the heads on the plugs.

I'm thinking it's either the coil pack has a problem or another electrical fault somewhere but i'm not sure.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Alan

Hi Alan
Have you tried changing the plug leads at all?

Hi,

It's had new plugs already, just got a new TDC sensor and have ordered new leads so fingers crossed.
