I have my 2005 1.4 ford focus mk2 and it needs attention asap. The car is very sluggish to accelerate especially on a hill. I know they came out of the factory with sluggish acceleration but my car seems like it wants to hold back when foot is pressed to the floor. I have replaced plugs and coil-pack and still no improvement, the ht leads look in good shape so i didn't bother with them. The car has also failed nct due to emission problems so i have come to the conclusion that the egr valve may need a serious clean considering the old spark plugs were in an awful state. The car was scanned with diagnostics and no codes were present. Anyway, I can't locate the egr valve though so if anyone could help it would be appreciated,
Thanks in advance.
