Hey guys im new here I have been having troubles with my petrol swb maverick running very rough and its been to the mechanic countless times now and the problem is still there.
Whats happening is the tacho revs are dropping on acceleration and nearly causing the car to stall and will sometimes back fire if i try to accelerate through it. I'm pretty green with all the mechanical side of things but im wondering if you guys could give me a list of things for my mechanic to check cause I love the car but im at the point now where I want to sell it because I cant get this problem fixed any help would be great thanks

It could be the points. If they're stuffed change the condenser too.
Could be the coil or come to think of it, any part of your ignition might be weak. Spark plugs, leads... have you checked for leaks in vacuum hoses and manifold etc?
If your mechanic needs list of what to check and he has already had a few goes at it, then you need a new mechanic.
