Hi all im now the owner of a mk3 mondeo saloon & its suddenly developed a slight misfire under acceleration.Its usually when pulling away from a rolling start in 2nd it kangaroos then if you take your foot of the accelerator it stops but ive noticed from cold its also doing it in 1st.If you gently tickle the throttle its not too bad but its still there.May i add this isnt every time its occasionally but frequent enough to warrant investigation.Please help as it doing my head in cheers all.

I would change the leads and plugs anyway as they may never have been done. I always change them when I buy a second hand car with over 50k miles on. Also check your air filter is clean.

It is most likely to be the leads breaking down as peanut1 said. There is more load on these when at low revs than at higher revs and therefore more chance to miss.

Fit a coil pack first before you do anything. 4 torx screws, 4 plug connectors, 15 mins job tops. It's a very common problem on most cars in perticular Ford. Hundreds of them for sale on ebay. Cheers
