Hi ya All.
I am shocked first time this ford let me down since brand new in 1986 and it has always been serviced and looked after and has been a great ford.
It has 270000 klicks on the clock since new.
I hope someone would know what has caused the following to go wrong with it.
Two days ago I went to start her like I normally do and she fired up straight away I let her idle for 5 minutes as always before driving.
She stalled when I went to put er in gear.
Thought that is strange.
Tried to start er again and she wouldn't.
She would turn over but not ignite.
So I lifted the hood checked the basics and found no spark.
The coil had been replaced during the last service three months ago
and thought maybe that is the problem.
Checked the current to the coil and it was good but nothing was coming out.
So thought that is it I wondered down the road bought a new coil for er.
Got back and installed the new coil and she fired up straight away.
She was running about two minutes and stopped.
Went to fire er up again turned over a few cycles and she started ran about a minute then stopped.
So I tired to fire er up again and she wouldn't checked for spark and guess what none checked the new coil current getting to it but none coming out.
I am stumped and hoping it has not done another coil. There is I think it is a condensor looks like it that is linked back on to the coil that looks pretty old could that be it??
I was hoping somebody might be able to shed some light on this problem I am having with my XF fairmont Ghia.
Thanks for any suggestion posted Kind Regards
