[s-cars] Actually the problem is worse than I thought.

Earlier I posted about the flat spot I've been experiencing. There is
another problem I thought I had fixed (by replacing the plugs and
connectors) but have not. There is an intermittent and severe misfire.
The car will run sweetly, then suddenly lose a lot of power and run
with throbby "boomy" exhaust noise. This might continue for several
miles then suddenly everything will come back to normal and away we go.
The problem *might* be initiated when I hit a rough bit of road,
indicating some sort of dodgy connection. What's the deal with the
coil-packs? Are they strictly go/no-go or are they capable of
functioning intermittently? Supporting facts are a petrol smell in the
engine bay when running like this and stinky exhaust.
Any help here greatly appreciated.
