Broken Dizzy? And leaky tail lights

My ED seems a little lethargic lately. I think there may be a spark problem or Dizzy prob? It feels like less low down grunt and the peak power is tapered off.

Also it hesitates sometimes when you first get on the gas and cut out on me for a second today, recon the dizzy is fugged?

Also my tailight is filling with water in the indicator, can it be fixed or just replace it?

So many things can cause that. Ignition problems are generally associated with hesistation or missing.
Best bet is a quick run on a dyno, it's just guess work otherwise and may cost more in replacing the wrong parts.

You might be able to fix the indicator with some silicone.

The Tail lights have gaskets between the lens and the rear car body...probably deteoriated...id say go into ford parts and get a new gasket..and run some sillicone along the join between the lens and gasket. That should fix it...
