Hi,

I noticed my car started misfiring specially when going uphill and at traffic lights while iddling.

I guess it's high time I replace wires, distributor & cap. But before I get my hands dirty I wanted to ask if there's anything to check/do before/while/after I replace these.

Thanks a lot in advance.

DON'T disconnect plug wires and check for spark! I don't remember specifically what it will fry, but it will be expensive. No personal experience, but read it here in the past.

^ That was Dugald, but he yanked the coil wire, not an individual plug wire. I don't think a plug wire would be an issue.



EZL module?

Whatever that may be...
