Hi when driving along engine jumps/mis fires. when stopped car revs go up and down sometimes staying at 1400 revs for about couple of min before dropping or trying to stall at 500 revs. spent about 400 so far. plugs ht leads,air flow meter,igniction box,idle control valve,feul filter,cleaned earth points around car as thought lambert sensor. car wont pick up on computer dionog... someone said feul inj cam actuator but where is it. help i want a smooth ride always had fords but this one letting me down! my focus is brillant! i have the same problem with my 1996 escort it jumps and misses but the rev's dont go up or down i was told it could be the coil breaking down under load ?

distributor cap and rotor problem - there is your problem. If you do not put those suckers back in the same exact position, with the exact same markings, it will cause the car to fire the spark plugs at different times, causing miss fire and some times no firing at all.

Engine idle/running speeds sometimes excessive


You have a throttle problem (it gets stuck) take it to a mechanic and have it cleaned and greased up and that should solve your problem.

Engine runs on when driving along

Escort 1998 1.8 zetec mis firing


try using a gauge to measure fuel delivery pressure but this tool may only be available to the dealer or a big garage,best advice in a case like this is put car in dealers as you cant read the the ECU readings as the OBD II connector cable doesnt have manufacturers pin connections.Have a funny feeling this problem is a concoction of different faults,but try checking gauze filter on bottom of pump in the fuel tank or for porosity on the flexible connections that connect the plastic fuel lines to the unit on the tank .
