1996 ford 1.9 lx hatchback 150k miles. Ok Gang, please help me diagnose an intermittent sputter, now there are at least a few other threads i found searching, and the obvious culprits being plugs, wires, ignition pack.... I am getting an intermittent sputter, it lasts for about 15 seconds. First time i noticed it, i happened to be driving around with an ODB2 scanner connected so checking i see it threw a p03xx if i recall correctly. Weeks later i went for a drive today and it happened twice... Ultimately the question is what usually causes intermittent sputter. Wires and ignition pack are original. i cant recall when I changed the plugs, but i when i did they were Bosch platinum plus HR9HP0, perhaps they have 60k but 10 years on them, i understand 100k is not unusual. pulling the plugs they appeared quite normal. The gap was a bit out on 2 of 4, nothing nuts. pulling the wires, i measured: - 7.8K ohms on #1 it being the longest - 6.8K ohms on #2 it being the second longest -6.0K ohms on #3, the third longest and 5.8K on #4, the shortest This seems pretty normal to me due to the variable length, but im not sure. And twisting and turning the ends thoroughly didnt prove to show any faults in continuity. No cuts cracks, they look decent. So the question would be how can i test the coil pack? I tried to follow this generic video: But every measurement i took was infinite, i got no measure testing any combination from wire end to wire end, pin to pin, wire end to pin, pin to wire end.... Couldn't get any info. Honestly after 24.5 years one might say just change that crap, but at this point, its hard to keep throwing money at this old thing. Just want to do what is necessary or makes actual sense thanks Any suggestion would be appreciated.
