i need some help with my EA Fairmont, one day it just quit on us, we thought it was just out of fuel since it was pretty low, but fuel went in/through and nothing, we investigated it further and found we had no spark at the spark plugs, so we checked the TFI, the coil(s) hight tension lead all fine and still nothing. :evil:

any help Please will be great :)

What about the centre post on the distributor cap, they can wear down, or become stuck and no longer make contact, or the spring can break. Also, the rotor itself may not be close enough to the electrodes on the bottom side. Its no fun to get at, but take it off, clean it up, and see what happens
