My focus tdci 1.8 with just 26k misses now and again at slow speed,it's as if you have a bad spark plug in a petrol engined car,it's had a service about 1k ago,i can't see any engine managment lights on the dash,any ideas?Oh,i did think it may be bad fuel,but filled up at different garages and i don't think it is that?cheers.J.
