How do I stop coil lead arcing?
my ute was running like a bucket of puss, more so than ever I had an idea that it might have been electrical but wasnt 100% sure. One night when I couldnt take it anymore I started the ol girl at about 10:45 pm no lights and it was a virtual christmas tree under the hood it was arcing everywhere. On top of the rocker cover on the dizzy cap and between the coil and the dizzy on the dipstick. I changed the coil lead to a new one and the problem still exists somewhat; if you look under bonnet it still arks spasmodically. So to try and remedy that I pulled dipstick housing out and wrapped some insulation tape around it and did the same on the brand new coil lead, unfortunatley the problem still exists and I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to eliminate it almost or at least control it better? The ute is an XH falcon Longreach with electroninc ignition but no coilpacks. 1997 model automatic. Ive just started using Dieelectric grease on spakplug boots, would this help if i smeared it on coil lead boots and dizzy boots as well? Have a Happy New Year Guys and Gals
