first of all try a new set of spark plugs.......10er for Ngk's
if that dont cure it.....try a set of ignition/HT leads......10-15

if that dont cure it......get a haynes manual......and replace the rotor arm and dizzee cap....(distributor cap).....

thn try going down the scrapyard and getting a ignition coil.......no point going new unless you have money to burn...(ignition coil is gunna cost you 90+)

some older cars have a ignition coil.......like a round cylinder type thing about 6inches long......has one wire going to the distributor......and then it sends power to the 4 HT leads.......

coil packs are modern technoledgy more or less.....

will try n find a picture of what i mean
