Ford Escort Cabrio 1.6EFI - GordonSt
I recently bought this 1991 car and was told by main dealer that it was an "absolute minter", however about a week ago quite suddenly it started to splutter, especially under load. It's had new plugs and they are burning perfect. Could it be the leads?

More likely to be coil failing under load,nothing unusual on this,but plugs should show if spark does not occur,ie will be wet with petrol.

When was cambelt last changed on it?

Plugs are good sandy colour and not wet. Starts every time. Had new cambelt about 2000 miles ago.
