  1. Hi new to forum & after advice , Have a 2004 1.8 Focus Zetec TDCI ,About a month ago had problems with starting so called AA who managed to start with quick-start but advised me to take to a Diesel Specialist , As I have parts & labour cover i thought no problem take to a main dealer as it is covered up to £500 !! They had the car for approx 3 weeks & replaced battery, high pressure pump & one injector & said that a further could need replacing but I had run out of money & patience by then ,Oh & grand total was £500 for the AA plus an extra £1265 for me . Needless to say since then I have not filled the tank fully due to lack of cash but have filled with £30 on several occasions , well until this evening when i stuck £50 in , after about 15 miles the car has now developed what i can only describe as a misfire , sounds rough runs rough engine management (glow plug) light flashing until restart ? Before i take it back to the Main dealer in the morning can anyone advise what they think the problem could be please Thanks in advance Jules
