    Default CDI fails again and again in Lancer 86

    Dear Members, My car has started developing a problem of busting the CDI (the one plastic looking object in the distributor). Once it discovered when the car refused to start in the morning. Other time the CDI busted while the car engine was running. I kept asking the electrician the cause of failure, but he made no answer just replaced the CDI for the third time (which actaully costs a lot for a owner of 86 model car). Can some one explain what is the reason of CDI failure again and again. Thanx in advance.

    check the ignition coil, Spark plugs and the plug wires resistance.
