I heard somewhere, maybe on here that there was a ECU update or something to help with the emmissions or something. How do I know if my focus has it and if so what is the new spark plug gap for the update. If I remember the original gap is eithe 1.2mm or 1.3mm will check the user manual later. Thanks in advance

The spark plug gap is 1mm. If you go to ford for a diagnostic, the machine will auto update the ECU with any updates if available.

Will halfords be able to update it and check the gaps as I want to take it to halfords as they are doing mots for 27.99 at the moment and if not how much will ford charge to update and check the gaps. cheers
