I have a mk 2 granada 2.8i.the engine cuts out every time i select drive and the tickover is eratic.


Sounds to me as if it's an elctrical fault: check the distributor cap for any cracks or tracks also check the centre contact to the rotor arm that the spring is in good condition. i hope this works as there are many silly small things that can cause these symtoms.. kind regards Ronnie
