Hi all
Have a problem with my ford focus lately 1.4 CL. Engine seems to be spluttering while accelerating, engine management light also flickers during the spluttering sometimes. Other times no lights at all. Aswell as this Sometimes when i start the car, the engine management light comes on and all the dials stay wherever they are at the time of the light coming on and dont move till the light goes out. Had a fault check at a Ford dealership and they say theres nothing showing on the diagnostic. Dont knwo where to go next ??
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have something to contribute?
