Well people had the car away yesterday with the misses we were about 80 mile from home the car never missed a beat even had a bit of Craic with an old crx on the way their it was raining all day and when we got to the hotel I parked the car up until this morning
When I started the car this morning I let it tick over for 5 mins wile we sorted bags and stuff out then pulling out of the car park I put the foot down and could feel something not. Right with the car so I pulled onto a slip road and and put the foot down and the car would not rev over 3k Just got to about 3k and stoped reving then when I lifted of it just poped and backfired
So I lifted the bonet checked all my distributor leads were tight and dry and the cap as iv had water in thes places on other cars that has given this sort of problem but all were tight and dry so I had to drive home at under 3k rpm this was all rite the car was smooth and driveable but would just puse and not rev over 3k
So any ideas on were to check now and other causes or experiences would be appreciated thanx iv been having problems with my wifi won't be up in runing till next week so have been trying to search at slow speeds but no sucsess yet thanx again
my best guess is a weak spark going by the back firing. Check the dizzy cap and rotor arm for wear, bad plug leads and the connection from coil to dizzy. Actually, prob best to have the plugs out while your at it to see what condition and colour they are. A slightly brownish colour is the norm if using supermarket fuels due to their additives.

Well took a look again at car this time inside the distributor cap was soaking was defiantly dry the first time I looked at the side of the road and all power is back no problems think I'll change the distributor cap anyway to prevent further issue and the leads as they r showing signs of their age
I changed the plugs when I first got the car along with all the oils thanx for the suggestions
