1984 911 Carrera Engine Cutout


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 Carrera; Year: 1984; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 75,000;

As I am driving, the engine appears to "cut out" or loose powermomentarily. As it happens, the car will buck as it drops out and kicksin again. It is not consistent in doing this, although it seems to occurmost often when going up hills. On occasion it seemed that when I wouldfill the tank up with gas, the problem would go away for a while. I havenot driven it very much over the last several years, so I drained the gasand replaced it but it still occurred (fuel filter was also replaced nottoo long ago). My next thought was to replace the ignition wires andcoil. The problem seems similar to others I've read. Any thoughts?
