Hi I have a 51 plate focus 1.6 petrol........It has started to develop a slight mis fire when under load eg when pulling from low revs in third.........It only hiccups once and then is fine,,,,,,,Any ideas....I have recently changed the starter motor oil, oil filter, air filter and reset the spark plug gaps to the correct gaps before this is seemed ok,,,,,,,,,,

Cheers

I would try the leads first. If they have been pulled about after doing the plugs, they may have weakened. They dont get changed often and tend to break down under load when on the way out.

Last time on the SportKA it turned out to be an injector. But previous ones were usually the leads. Back in the old days people changed the plugs every 10k miles and the leads almost as often. But with plugs only being changed at 50k miles the leads dont like being moved after such a long period of time. Mind you like you suggest, there are so many things that can cause a misfire, you can end up pulling your hair out with it.
