The car im learning to drive in does not seem to be working correctly. Its really annoying as I was just getting good at driving...
4 pistons, manual, rod (non central cam), water cooled etc etc. Non fuel injection, no chip controlled functions.
-Car starts fine
-Car ticks over (idles) fine, nice and even
-Accelerating is not fine, car jerks and looses power
-Crusing at low rev, generally ok, with a few jerks
-Fast revs on engine, misfiring in at least one of the pistons, but only once in a while...not so bad when hot
Accelerating is the main problem as this creats a drematic loss of power and misfires.
So far ive tried:
-Replacing the distributor cap and rotor as these were worn out. Its improved the performance, but its still missfiring.
Could this be a spark plug problem? Bad ground connection? Ht leads, coil?
I hope its not fuel related.
