Question about 2001 Ford Focus

2 Answers

Engine missing, car jerking and juddering

I have a 2002 1.6 Focus Zetec. Recently the engine has been missing as if a plug lead is loose (they are not) causing the car to judder and ****.The revs do not seem to fluctuate whilst the car is jerking, but there is interference on the radio (??!) The problem is not constant, seeming to clear after a few minutes only to reurn later.
This makes me think it might be an electrical problem.
Many thanks in advance
Tim

You might have a bad plug wire it doesn't have to be loose you could have a hole or cut in the wire and it's not getting a good spark to the cylinder. the radio interferance tells me this might really be the problem

Problem - Stuttering engine help please. My Ford Focus 2002 TDCi 1.8 diesel has a judder between 2,000 and 3,000 rpm. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, what is the solution? To give you an


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

How to change the spark plugs on a 1.6 zetec ford


get a plug spanner (more a socket than a spanner) and after removing the plug lead, use the spanner to remove the plug. Do one at a time so you dont get the leads mixed up or it will not start.

Ford focus zetec 1.6 auto, Misfiring and no power


It's normal for the cat to get hot - given they've replaced everything (just about) that could cause your problem - they have not looked at the injectors and O2 sensors. If you had something burning in the engine bay it was most likely electrical and you should look for burnt wires. You probably have a short in the ignition system or fuel injector wire harness. It's nearly impossible to diag a problem like this without having the car first hand. It must be throwing check engine light codes. Get the codes and post them. Also try a different shop at this point.
