I've got a 1987 Flalcon S Pack and everytime the car runs, the engine shakes roughly, as though it is going to stall. Anyone know what it could be? I know there are numerous things that it could be but I was just hoping that someone out there could shed some light on it. Theres no overheating or crap like that... Just a nervous engine.

hey i USED to have an xf, still got an xe too!
it could be numerous things, but most likely fuel/spark related.
also check engine mounts, i had a broken one and my car ran like a heap of s**t.
