needs lookaed at as the leads and coil could be knacked although the ngk are the same as motorcraft plugs that ford use new motorcraft come with the ngk stamp check the plug gap its not 1.3mm as it used to be its now 1.0mm so the plugs if they were gapped at 1.3 will causde uneven idle though the focus doesnt idle evenly anyway it will always be slightly up and down do the dash trick and watcg the revs on the dash display should be 670 - 730 rpm if its in that range and up and down the revs are fine and its likely the leads and coil though the core plugs may have been damaged as well
