Did you replace cap and wires.


its individual coils on the duratech motor and their would be a misfire code id assume no?


Fuel filter is a life time in tank unit when on the road and moving the car runs like a champ and gets good fuel economy 5.8 to 6.7 l per 100km so I'm assuming it issent anything big
