How do i remove and reinstall the distributor on ford falcon 4.0 1999 model


First make absolutely sure #1 cylinder is at top dead and the timing mark on the crank pulley is lined up. Pop off the distributor cap and check to see if the rotor is pointing to the #1 spark plug wire. Loosen the bolt that holds the clamp at the base of the distributor. Move it aside or remove it them pull up on the distributor and move it out.

Engine interference in ford falcon


I would suggest you put a radio noise filter on the power lead to the radio. You can buy them from most electronics stores or online. They are called "RF Filters" Also make sure the radio has a good chassis ground and the antenna ground is good.

97 saturn sl2 died while driving , pulled first spark plug boot and found filled with oil


The head gasket needs replaced. This particular Saturn is known for having this exact problem, and 9 out of 10 times, replacing the head gasket fixes it. I just did it myself for $35.

Go to checker/autozone and get a head gasket (should just need the gasket and not the entire kit) and a tube of RTV silicon grease to help make the seal.

Unhook everything from the engine (plugs, wires, etc, and unscrew the head. There should be about 10 or so screws surrounding the black plastic head cover. You'll find things a mess in here, but clean it up best you can. Remove the old gasket and clean the entire gasket area completely and make sure its dry. Put down your RTV grease, the new gasket, some more RTV, and screw the head back on. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T SCREW IT TOO TIGHT. The screws only need to be snug. Tighten it like you would a spark plug. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. Might run like **** the first half mile or so.

It sounds like you may have the spark plug wires mixed up. It's not the thermostat, that wouldn't make it run like that. What size engine is in it?

Firing order for a 1996 EF ford falcon


EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
