Re: No Spark. Eb 4.0

OK. So, EEC-IV falcons (XF-EL excluding EF) need these things for spark:
1) A 12v feed to the distributor and coil - check ignition switch, relays etc.
2) A PIP signal from the hall sensor in the dissy
3) A working TFI to switch the coil
4) Good plugs, leads, coil, etc.
5) A signal ground for the dissy
6) 1,2,3,4,5.

These are very easy to diagnose! Start with your multimeter at the coil +ve (with key on) and work from there!

Good luck

Sounds like a TFI problem if its temp sensitive.

Re: No Spark. Eb 4.0

Water not a good idea; use freeze spray - less chance of creating a short in TFI connectors. I would also look for a cracked coil.
