They may not have seated your fuel filter or air filter properly.

the problem was there before i had service.i thought the service would get rid of the problem.the diagnostic m/c does not pick anything up either.

Is the car a diesel or petrol engine?

If its petrol then could be the coil pack, HT, plugs or cam sensor.

Diesel could be the hoses to the turbo, clogged dpf if fitted.

On either of them it could be a dirty EGR valve.

It may be worth getting a diagnostic done, it sounds like fuel pressure to be honest.

Whether or not any codes will come up I don't know but you may get lucky.

are you using genuine parts? i recommend you do as the focus doesnt seem to like aftermarket leads, plugs or coil.

hi thanks for replying

i don't think they are genuine parts as only cost £50 to be fitted from my local garage but did supply and fit the new one in feb for free.

but what else can be affecting the coil pack to play up again as this garage always uses these parts and have said something else must be causing this to happen.it is booked in later this week as amber light is still on so maybe they will find something then.just wondered if anyone had any ideas as this is started to bug me now.

when i had the focus i went through quite a few cheap coil packs, switched to genuine leads, plugs and coil and never had a problem again.
