Missing & Stalling

Postby d_harris » Thu Apr 21, 2011 4:48 pm

This first manifested itself the last time I drove the car (last Thursday night) and reared its head when I tried to take the car to town today.

When the car is going, it goes well, but occaisionally misses - i.e a brief "jerk" sometimes its really noticable and almost as if the brakes have gone on, sometimes it just a brief lack of power.

When the car is stationary it starts, runs and keeps missing and stuttering and eventually stalls itself. I'm pretty certain that its not a fuelling issue (I've taken the top of the float chamber off, and there's plenty of fuel in there when its happening.

I would suggest that because it started happening at night that its not a vapourisation issue...

Any thoughts?

flooding? leads, plugs, coil? play in the distributor housing?
