SOURCE: 2000 Focus Zetec-rough idle, very rough under load.

you haven't said if its petrol or diesel so i'm assuming its petrol since your smelling sulfur sounds if you have a misfire causes could be plugs,leads or ign coil i suspect its ign coil these are common to go.

You may have to get your wheels re balanced, or you may have a tire gone bad. Check your tire pressure and have all the wheels balanced at a tire store.
The other thing you could have is worn front end parts, like ball joint, shock bushing or shocks. Try greasing all the steering linkage and see if the vibration goes away, which would indicate worn steering parts.
Start with the tire pressure and then grease all the front end parts, if the vibration still there. Then have the wheel balanced and check for wheel alignments.
Good luck and hope this helps

SOURCE: Engine backfires when accelerating

Idle is rough because not a right Air/ Gas mixture.
The ideal air /gas ratio is 14.6:1. If less than that it has rich mixture. If it more then that it has a lean mixture.
Back fire happens when accelerated because of of rich mixture pumped out at exhaust cycle is burning.
At speed above 40 miles/hour, temperature and fast compression cycle make the problem is less obvious.
Cheap first shot is to replace the air filter to correct this ratio. If it doesn't help, need Fuel distributor service. ( However people like to make easy money from you first, they will convince you for a turn up) Good Luck. I'll check back to see how the progress going.

Hi I am driving a 2006 Nissan frontier with a ZD30 engine. I ran out of fuel and it stalled. I have put in 15 litres of diesel but it just swings but won't start. Please help

System is most likely full of air. Sometimes continuing to crank the engine will purge the air and it will start but this can be hard on the starter motor. You may have to remove the fuel filter and fill it with fuel to prime the system.
