  1. Hi I bought a second hand 63 plate Ford Ka Grand Prix 1.2 in Feb from Arnold Clark. One month after I got it, I was on the motorway and my check engine light came on and car went into limp mode - would not go above 30 mph. Turned car on and off, but this didn't help. Eventually had to get the car towed, and spark plugs and leads were changed. After this, there was a constant smell of petrol/gas in the car whenever I used the AC - turns out that when my spark plugs were being changed, Arnold Clark mechanics had cracked my air filter box. So also had that fixed. A few months later, engine warning light came on again as well as the general warning light and the car went into limp mode, but was fine after turning car on and off. Took it to a different garage - as I will not be putting my car back into Arnold Clark - who said the spark plug fault had not been cleared by the previous garage. So this was cleared, and the mechanic advised that if the issue continued it would probably be the coil pack. Everything was fine for around one month, when the same thing happened again. Had the car run on two different diagnostic machines which now said the coil pack was the issue, so I had this changed (I also had a burst pipe). Been fine for around 3 weeks until today when the engine warning light came on and the car went into limp mode again - fine after turning on and off. Does anyone have any idea what could possibly be the issue? I'm at a total loss now as to what the issue could be, and am pretty fed up of having an unreliable car. Any help is much appreciated!!

  2. Hi there i have a Ford Focus MK1 1.6 petrol and i recently had a breakdown which involved me calling the RAC. One of the terminals on the coil pack had broken i believe due to corrosion and was misfiring until it completely cut out after it snapped, so had a new pack fitted along with some new spark leads. All worked fine for about 2 weeks but now my engine management light has come back on while the engine is running, i remember the guy from the RAC telling me that sometimes you should have the spark plugs changed at the same time but due to it being fully serviced in March i didn't have it done. It still seems to be running slightly ok for a car with 162000 miles on the clock but was just wondering if anyone had this same issue at any point or if anyone has any advice apart from get a new car which is unfeasible at the moment.
  3. Focus Mk1 Coil Pack Failures

    So... I have a 1.6 Mk1 Facelift focus (52reg) which is just burning through coil packs... I have replaced 4 in the last 12 months, and the latest one is starting to develop issues at only a couple of months old. The last one was bought from ford for an arm and a leg. Does anyone know of any issues that may cause the packs to fail? Such as unstable electrical current or anything as wild as that? Cheers, A
  4. Engine Issue - Misfiring

    Hi, I've been having engine issues and when the engine light came on i read the fault code P2300 which means ignition coil right? Anyway i ordered a new ignition coil and ht leads a few days ago but only just had a proper look at the wiring which i totally overlooked as a possible cause and one of the wires has a cracked casing...that must be the cause of the issue right? Question is how would i go about fixing this? Can i get it to the garage by wrapping some insulating tape around it? I take it they would have to replace this end of the wiring loom or can they just replace the plug (part number?) And does anyone have an idea of how much something like this should cost? Thanks!
  5. Hi guys, New here, hoping to get some advice if possible please. :) I have a 2004 Ford Focus 1.6. On Monday, the engine cut out over 10 times on my way to work. Laboured start up as if I was starting in 3rd gear, once moving there was a lack of response on the accelerator, took a long time to build up any speed. Stopping in traffic would result in the engine cutting out, dash showed battery and oil lights. If I was turning when it cut out, I would feel the power steering fail. I dropped it in to Halfords on Monday night. They replaced spark plugs, HT leads and ignition coil pack. The car is now running fine but since picking it up last night, I have noticed issues with the power steering. It's not touch sensitive like it was, it feels looser - almost like floating instead of having full control and requires a lot more steering. The acceleration was nippy and responsive before, now it's slow and sluggish. I took it back to Halfords this evening, they told me it can't be power steering rack, can't be pump, there's enough power steering fluid in the reservoir and that I'm being paranoid. I know there's a huge difference to before this issue started on Monday. I don't believe it's the power steering itself - could they perhaps have put in the wrong coil pack, knocked something, loosened something? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
