ok fella.

my 95 series 1 fairmont surges now an again.
used to only do it on the highway. but now everytime i go for a drive it does it. also idle goes up an down a little sometimes. im wondering could it be the coilpack bout to die? and if so how much for a new one? ford item or aftermarket one?

have you got a k&n filter? the oil in them can make the isc play up a bit. check your isc wiring for starters mine was surging but found the harness is FCKED so did some 'work' on that he he

umm, leads i dont know. they look fine to me, only had the car 14ish months. so i might try that. did plugs a while back maybe 7000km ago.

just running standard ford filter.

im thinking voids is on the money as it only does it now an again. the idle i think is a result of that.

had surging problem with my EF ages ago all it was was a lead was stuffed. new set and smooth as. pays to replace them every so often even if they still look ok.

do you fit your insulation covers (plastic ribbed conduit tubing) over your leads? i got two on mine, not sure if they help much but the cabbie mechanics fit em.
