1986 Mercury Lynx, 94000kms, auto, carburated, front wheel drive. New plugs & distributor 1 year old, rebuilt transmission 1yr old. Brand new starter motor.
A few weeks ago my Lynx started cutting out violently while under load, usually while accelerating. It only happens once in a while, and seems to happen less when I shift manually (let the revs get higher). Just wondering if this could possibly be the ignition module, and if not, what else could it be? It started backfiring recently as well, not sure if this is just coincidence. How do I fix backfiring?
