This sounds like a computer related problem for the vehicle
the electronic spark system is not getting the signal from the computer to keep its self in flaux check the spark plug houseing unit this can be done with an omh tester to make sure that its getting continuity
the other thing is make sure you that your spark plugs wires are firmly pressed into position on spark and spark plug houseing if there not seated they wont fire
make sure capasitor is not faulty these tend to ware out

Timing belt slipped on 2003 1.6 focus need the timing marks


there are no timing marks as such on the focus mate you have to lock the cams with a setting bar (to do this you need to remove the rocker cover and lock the cams with a locking bar)
the crank is locked up by removing a plug behind the oil pump on the back of the engine (the crank needs to be at top dead center on number 1 cylinder and this can be done by removing number 1 spark plug and using a long piece of welding wire or screwdriver, place in to the cylinder and turn over until the piston is at the top)
with the cams locked and the crank locked your engine will be timed up
please let me know if this has been of any help
cheers

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.

I got a 1.4 zetec fiesta and its miss firing and no power i was told it could be my valves but its not smoking or anything please help


If you have a mis-fire in your pistons, you need to change your spark plugs. And you might as well change your spark plug wires. Spark plugs can run you about... anywhere from $2 - $90. Take a trip to Advanced Auto Parts. You can get spark plugs for about $7 dollars a piece. With a 1.4 L engine you only have 4 pistons. Spark plug wires will run you a little bit more. Not sure. They are different for every car so im not sure
