Smile bad rev stutter

hello all,

I was driving my 97 El falcon futura today in the afternoon and as i was driving the car started to kick around abit, like the revs would go from 2-4-3-6-1-dead.

dead being car cuttting out..

then after about 10mins of letting it sit at the light with my flashing lights hoping no idiot would smash into it, i got it started again, so i took off.

then halfway down the road it started to kick around again with the revs but this time it didn't break down.

as bad of a description that is, does anybody know what it may/could be?



Thankyou in advance :)

Re: bad rev stutter

i would be thinking if the tacho is moving around it is the distribtor and the ten minute wait also suggest that you could replace the electronics of the dist but better off getting a new one.

Re: bad rev stutter

Could also have a check at any vacuum pipes / hoses for leaks and drawing air .
