1980 Lincoln Mark VI, very low miles, newer tune up (wires, cap rotor plugs high quality but almost a year old) timing on the money, new coil and new ignition module (replaced tonight). Car will just shut off after it warms up, troubleshooting found not getting spark, the cap and rotor (high quality not cheap one) were badly corroded on cylinders 1, 4, 6, 7 (split level cap/rotor) and one wire bad (cylinder 7) as well, even the post on the cap for this cylinder was about 1/4 gone. Could it be this simple as bad parts or could it be another problem that burned up the cap/rotor and wire and this is a symptom? I have not seen a cap in this bad of shape sense the old days of dual points and old performance super coils.
have the same problem?
