16 November 2013 - 12:41 AM

got the problem of dying under acceleration .emptied 1 inch of water from ports (thank you window washers).changed ignition coil.checked leads..still misfires under acceleration.runs ford normal when cold but when heats up i get that same old splutter problem..water pump seems to work as I get a steady flow from the return pipe to the bottle.took cap off oil fill.i  get a bit of back pressure.but don't hear gurgling from oil pump. .so could the oil pump malfunction be the cause? I am totally lost here

checked the plug leads yesterday pulled the first one out and the lead was soaking pulled the other three out all were dripping with water. looked into the spark plugs and was amazed to see that the plugs were  at least 1/2 an inch submerged in water. drained the water out and dried it off this gave me instant power when I put it back together again  .taken it for a long run for an hour or so. seemed fine but on the way back home it started to splutter like mad then the engine light started to flash then stay on. checked the plugs all was dry.  back to square one. wonder if the water fried my new ignition coil? .going to buy new coil and leads. had the error code checked. code was ignition coil.. thanks for your reply jeebowhite.

 will do electrics and if that don't work I will check airflow
