You have been conned . To blow sparks means that the exhaust gas temperature is excessive or that the cat converter is failing. Run the fault codes to ensure that the system is running as intended ( O2 and HO2s sensors) are ok and that the cat converter is working. BY the time the exhaust gas gets to the muffler the sparks would be out as the highest temperature is in the cat converter while the rest of the system is in a state if cooling down

Check the EGR valve pipe connection and mounting gasket, also check the EGR pipe connection at the exhaust manifold. Check the exhaust manifold for cracks and gasket leaks, hope this helps, let me know.

I have a misfire in my 2000 ford focus SE. What are the listed causes and what would be the solution?


First thing to try would be plugs and wires. If that makes no difference, it could be a nything from electrical to timing belt. So, try the plugs and wires, and see how you make out.

Rough idle and engine will shut off after warm.


Check the exhaust manifold gasket. I have a 2003 SVT Focus I had a problem with it loping at low RPMs. I had a free flow exhaust system. When I bought a new exhaust manifold I replaced the gasket and the problem went away.
