Question about 2001 Ford Focus
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
Hi sounds like your coil pack is breaking down. I was told by one of the dealers its a comon fault hope this helps.

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

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.
