hey everyone, i got an el and when left in drive, it misses. But it is irregular. I have no idea what to look for. Also the car is running on dedicate gas. Looking at the RPM's, it will tend to drop just 50 rpms then go back to normal. it is hard to see it on the tacho but i can feel it heaps as the car shakes like its about to stall for a split second. I'm not sure if its electrical or gas related. I think it is using a little bit of water but pretty sure that has nothing to do with it. As if it was leaking through the head gasket, it will be missing all the time. What should i check first.
Cheers Adam

Thats the thing, i dont know where the coolant is leaking from. I cant spot nothing on the ground. Ill look at the spark plugs and leads first. How often should the leads be replaced?
