have you changed the fuel filter? poor pulling can be many things so eliminating thems the best way to start is the clutch slipping is the car using excessive fuel the maf could be needing cleaned faulty temp sensor to name but a few usually a code will be thrown up if not and the engine light isnt on its one of those hard to diagnose things

give it a full service

plugs
ht leads
air, fuel filter
oil change
clean the Maf

if none of that makes any difference then it could be many thing, coil pack on it's way out, injectors blocked, fuel pressure low (fuel Pump, Fuel Regulator) could be many things, if no codes then i tend to look for things that don't have a sensor but i would give it a full service, when was the last time u change the spark plugs and HT Leads?

not having a go at anyone person. But I get fed up of reading posts that go along the lines, I've got a car that is not working properly can you tell me what's wrong with it. No year of build or registration date, no model designation, no engine size, don't know if its petrol or diesel. PUTTING THAT INFO IN YOUR SIG saves a lot of time....... rant over :rolleyes:

As to the OP,

If it's petrol, plugs by and large are recommended to be changed every two years. If you have not changed them since having the car, they could be years old, four or five who knows.

most likely its because yiou need a new coil pack mate with new leads it should be smooth so the coil pack is the likely culprit as for plugs ford claim the originals on mine shouldnt need changed till 100k !Removed! i change mine every year or two no longer than that

yep i agree the ford coil packs are well known for failing regardless of age thats why many are fitted with screaming demon coil packs and leads expensive but have proven reliable as they are coated to protect them up to 1400 degrees the leads also but require some wiring at nealy 150 quid they are very expensive

That's ok mate I was joking around

I took the batt wire off and left it for about 30 min still doing it would it matter if one of the plugs had a crack in the shramic part (white bit on the leads end) soz about the spelling
