Vibration/Shudder when idle/Power Loss

5 posts in this topic

Long story but here goes....got a focus 1.6 it was runnin perfect until the other week when it started to misfire new coil but no diff so turned out to be water in the spark plugs (a think that came from the engine bay being cleaned) changed the plugs and leads and got rid of all water. 2 days later the car struggled to start when cold and then temp sensor went...so after replacing the sensor the cold start problem went and no water returned sorted but now the car vibrates when idle (sat at lights etc) and gets worse when you use your lights, wipers etc. Help this car is drivin me mad!!! Thanks in advance

check your voltage from the alternator as low voltage will have a knock on effect
