Hi guys needing some help I've got a focus 53 plate it's been running a bit poorly the engine management light came on when I went to the shop (2min drive) as I was on the way back the eml was flashing. I got my code reader out it had 2 codes one was not applicable so I don't know and the other was miss fire. So I've changed the following:

Coil pack, ht leads, and spark plugs.
But now runs really bad nearly cutting out. Has anyone got any ideas at all I'm thinking injector or lambda sensor.

Any ideas would be a big help cheers mark.

Im thinking an injector but it needs more investigation first. The lambda sensor would only have effect once the sensor has warmed up, so from a cold start it will have no effect

The code you listed is;



 

P0304 - Ford Type Powertrain - Ignition System or Misfire - ISO/SAE Controlled Description

Cylinder Number 4 Misfire Conditions

Cause

Engine running in a positive torque condition, then the PCM
detected a misfire condition in engine cylinder number 4 (lack of spark
or fuel metering, base engine)

 

 

Hope this helps..http://www.dtcsearch.com/P0304/  this site also lists other codes..
