Need input fellas. '97 EL Falcon Gli 6 Cylinder. Idle is fine and drives well,however notice a miss/ sluggish sensation when trying to power uphill or overtake vehicle.Have replaced Distributor(18 months ago) Leads and rotor at same time. Spark plugs this week along with fuel filter and air filter. Iam thinking of replacing ignition coil and lead but I am thinking coils either work or they don't???.
Compression test revealed 185-190 on all with no variance. Would love some ideas and if to be tested by Mobile guy, who would be the best. Driving me Mad. Thank you.
