were they ford garages?When an engine pinks, there will be a sudden loss of power and an accompanying noise - a high-pitched pinging rattle rather like a diesel engine on start up Allowing pinking to continue can cause serious damage to the engine very quickly .

The immediate solution to alleviate the problem is to drive more conservatively, completely avoiding hard throttle at low revs

pinking is down to preignition so other than the fuel youre using being poor quality the only other things really are the timing so it could be ecu that needs flashed and reprogrammed if the plugs leads and coil were done were they with genuine ford parts as this can make a big difference.

it needs to be ata ford garage and properly diagnosed or youll knacker that engine if you continue to drive it

it was in fords and they could not find anything :angry:

take it back and tell them you paid good money to have the fault diagnosed and fixed and were told it has been yet the car is still misfiring a sugestion would be if youre using supermarket fuel stop using it and get shell fuel as poor fuel can cause the pinking
