Re: good mechanic needed
even on an EL, there is little scope for adjusment.
The best way on these cars...EA-EL is to watch your fuel consumption.
My EB Centrepoint Injected, gives 520-540km per tank (i suck it dry). If it drops below 500 for 3-4 consecutive tanks, then i start with plugs, leads, dizzy cap and rotor buton.
If this doesn't fix it, then i get the injectors done by a mobile guy.
I have spent zip on diagnosis....only time i did, it stopped 50 yards from work..and a mechanic, and i rolled backwards down the road into his shop. Turned out was the module on the dizzy...now know how to diagnose the problem there.
Fact is, these falcons are easy to diagnose for bad running...esp if it gets worse over time....computer diagnosis will NOT tell you about a bad lead.
PS...as suggested use genuine leads. i get triple the life out of the (have personally done 340,000km in my EB)
