I would suspect that you have a loose connection inside the distributor or in the ignition wiring. Give it a good visual inspection. Also, after dark, have someone start the car while you observe under the hood for any arcing or sparking. Doing this at night allows you to see where trouble may be located. Let me know what you find. saailer@att.net

Start with new plugs and ignition wires.
If does not help, try injector cleaner like Seafoam in the gas tank.
Beyond that it should go to the mechanic. Good luck...

check for a vacuum leak.

While driving my 91 capri it just shuts off. no spuddering or anything?


Sounds like ignition module in distributor going bad...they are electronic and get heat sensitive...when they cool off a little the car starts and runs again...fairly simple to pull the distributor cap, rotor and then replace the module...Chris

Run it back to autozone and while running have them test your charging system. It sounds like a low voltage situation. Alternator is probably not putting out enough voltage to run ignition, charge battery and run all accessories at same time,

Sounds like your computer needs to be replaced, it controls all of the ignition firing order. somethng else, the cam position sensor may be bad also, only 2 other problems I'm aware of in the ignition circuit.
