Hi, I had a similar issue with mine, I thought it was because I drove through some puddles and soaked the electrics but it continued to get worse as the weeks went by. I had to replace the rotor arm and the distribution cap, I also changed the HT leads while I was at it. Solved the problem. Hope this rules helps.
