Go get the codes ran at auto zone or advance auto parts they will do it for free. If the codes come up as a cylinder miss-fire then it is most likely a coil (being a ford). Write down which cylinder it is. I wouldn't replace any of the spark plugs , useless you have more than 100,000 miles. If you have to replace the spark plugs use BOSH double plautim or better. The cylinder placing is ( as your are looking at the front of the truck) passenger side front to back 1-2-3-4 driving side front to back 5-6-7-8. If you never seen a coil buy one so you know what you are looking for. The coil is held in by a 7mm bolt. Take the bolt out and replace the coil. Problem Solved. Estimated time 20 Mins with 60 dollars per coil.

Exactly the same problem.
2000-2003 Focus vehicles may exhibit a noise from the right halfshaft support bearing.
Due to the way the driveshaft is designed there is central bearing on the the shaft. On the front drivers side it has the tendency to hum at speeds over 40mph. This is the first sign that is the bearing is going. According to Ford it can be quite common in cars of 50-60k plus. If you don't notice the hum (I didn't really) you will eventually start to get a ticking/crackling noise at speed, which will gradually get worse and take less travel time to get going. Eventually the bearing will just seize, so it is worth getting it sorted.
Unfortunately even private mechanics will have to source the bearing, which isn't cheap, so it will cost around 125-150 quid at the garage to fix. It can be a pretty fiddly job, as the whole driveshaft needs to come out (not easy in high mileage cars due to build up of grime etc), so I wouldn't attempt to replace at home unless experienced.
