Hello there's no condensor on these, as thats to suit the old points type distributorswhat I'd suggest is to check the state of the small earth wires that run out of the engine bay wiring loom and are fixed to the engine with ring terminals - these are the ECU earth connections and they must be securely tightened with no corrosion on the jointdo the same for the main earth connection between the chassis and the engine block and the battery terminal I'd also check the resistance of the plug and coil wires Check the resistance of the spark plug leads ( 13-15Kohm / metre) and replace if any doubt or high resistance - Also replace the spark plugs if any of them fail this checklist:
