I recently got an '84 Mondial QV, 19K miles, Euro car. The first few days driving, the car ran fine, nice and powerful. Then, the other evening I started the car up and it was as if one bank of the engine was gone. No power, lots of hesitation. When I lifted my foot off the gas, it sputtered and backfired, and when I put my foot down on the clutch and took the other off the gas, it idled right down to almost nothing and stalled. Today, when I started it, it was okay when cold, but then started acting up once the car warmed up. When I got the car, the local mechanic, a well-respected Ferrari guy, who had been caring for the car told me it needed ignition wires and probably distributor caps and rotors. I picked up a set of replacement wires and took the car in today to have them changed. He feels that's the source of the problem. Is there something else that would likely be causing these symptoms? In my '72 Jaguar V-12, there was an ignition amplifer for the electronic ignition that was prown to failure when hot. Cool it down, and the car would be fine. When it would get hot, it would fail. Anything like that happen with the ECU or eletronic ignition packs on these cars? Something else I should be concerned about? Thanks, Steve W.
