    So my car has been running like ass for awhile. It has this random intermittent miss everywhere in the rev range. The car has new plugs and wires. Would a bad dizzy be a cause of this? I have had one go out in the past, but it was more of an abrupt failure. Is it common for a dizzy to go bad over time and miss like it is for me?

    when you changed the spark plugs and wires, it doesn't hurt to change the distributor cap and rotor which could be contributing to your current issue

    Yeah I'll try that... hopefully it will be a cheap fix.
