Your plug wires are getting old. Tune it up and it should take care of that. Don't forget to vote, I'm trying to get some reviews.

No power at high rpm

I'm guessing but this sounds like air problems. do you have a new air filter? The O2 sensor may be off but not technically bad yet. I'm pretty much stuck on something restricting the air flow.

Not sure here as its one of THEM but thinking about this ?? difficult with my one brain cell but from experiance of europeon cars especially opel and renaults i do know that computer failts when the vehicle warms up is not uncommon ,so unplug the computer and make sure the connections are not corroded on them little pins and a spray with WD 40 will not go amiss ,now look for the location of the computer and if its in a position where it gets the heat from the engine then mount a 12v computer cooling fan one of the bigger ones and rig it up so it comes on with the ignition and blows against the computer ,these cars i have worked on for a service but thats about all and i cannot remember the location of the units but like the opel zafiro where the computer is mounted to the inlet manifold they do suffer from this fault you describe so have a good look and if the computer is too close to the engine then attempt to move it a bit and fit the fan and see what happens ??

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS that up to 3000 rpm seems to run fine. at 3000, it starts to shudder and miss. any ideas/

Yea , take it to a qualified repair shop that has a scan tool that can show misfire data . That's the best way . What engine ? 3.0 L or 3.9 L . Both have COP - coil on plug ignition system . I have replaced a bunch of these coil's an spark plugs . The spark plug get so worn the spark can't jump the gap an fries the coil and if it goes like that long enough it will short out the driver (transistor) in the PCM engine computer . The last one i worked on cost the owner over 2 grand. New computer , programming , new coils , plugs , plus my labor .

Volvo s60 is still misfiring at 3000-4000 rpm. I changed the spark plugs and checked the coils and fuel injectors all good. Can't seem to find the problem. Any help! Also, my check engine light turns off...

Has anyone checked your "rev limiter" ? It is a sensor that will not allow you to "rev" your engine past a cetain RPM.
It is usually only "on" when you are in PARK, but it is something to consider.
Please let me know what you find.

you may need to have your spark plugs checked especially if they were just done (a recent tune up) misthreading can easily happen, or they may need to be replaced a car can run minus on plug.

Ive got a focus st170 and about 4000 revs it seems to missfire

  If you mean in neural it misses this is normal. It has a rev limiter to save the engine. You are bouncing it off the chip at 4000 rpm.
