my father inlaws ef fairmont is getting hard to start at times,i.e. at no particular time and for no particular reason from time to time it winds a fair bit before fireing...when running it runs well and doesnt get hot or use water and is the most fuel efficent 6cyl falc ive seen
im thinking a weak coil pack..would this be a fair guess??
any ideas.
cheers.
