I started my Falcon 95 EF but it was a bit shaking and stopped 3 minutes after that. I changed the new spark plugs and new spark plug leads, but still the some. The car runs both petrol and Gas, but in the Gas mode was the same problem. Anyone would please tell me what is the problem to my car.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there, check for a vacuum leak at the rear of the inlet manifold and at the vacuum fitting at the lower section rear of the manifold, this is a common problem with these engines, start here.

Today, my Falcon 95 EF can not start now. The start motor was sounded running, but there was no spark come from the leads. Those spark plugs and leads are new and just put in yesterday. Please tell me which part is fault, Thank you very much!

HI there, this can often be the distributor module. Or the crank angle sensor if a coil pack ignition.

Hi there, I need to know if your engine has a distributor, or a large coil pack on the side of the engine with the leads attached, the inlet manifold in the left hand side silver alloy manifold, the gasket in question is the one used to seal the manifold to the cylinder head.

I took the crank angle sensor out and cleansed it yesterday, but still could not start the car. I put the car to my local repair shop yesterday afternoon as I had my car problem for 4 days already. I thought maybe the distributor problem, or maybe not. I called super auto cheap to quote the price, and it was $125. I had spent about $80 for the new spark plugs and new leads already, but that was waste. I was worried to spend $125 for the distributor and just waste it again. Anyway, thank you for your help. If the result come back from the car mechanic is the same as you said, I still would like to donate a small price to support this service, and I would like to use this service when next problem happening. There are two things I would like to suggest: 1. Quicker respond as possible. 2. More details and more guiding as the questioner may just a normal mechanic. Thanks!
