Re: 1996 ef fairmont missing beats!

my EF is doing the same thing, mines dual fuel so i'm led to beleive it is the injections.
i'm gunna be putting some injector cleaner stuff in soon and see how it goes.
i guess its worth a try.

Re: 1996 ef fairmont missing beats!

are you absolutely sure that the leads are on the correct cylinder?

failing that, you might actually have a faulty coil, its common for the EF coils to die apparently...

EFFalcon, if it only misses on petrol then it probably is the injectors, but if its on both then it will be spark related

Thanks for info.

I rang the place we bought our ef from they told us they wouldnt fix it as it was a service part prob (absolute crap)and that stat warranty did not cover it .They just did not want to spend any$$ on it ,so i rang our warranty group ,they look like they may fix the prob so i may fix other things at the same time .Looks like crook injectors .this morning i backed out of our shed with bad manners and collected the door on the shed door (minor scratches)more scratches to my ego but.I found no good getting angry but get even .
