I got a full service today, so sparks were changed, the issue itself is a lot better, however it hasn't completely gone.

It still judders when accelerating, if the speed is kept constant it is smooth.

What does this point to?

any suggestions?

Sorry, it is an DIY job, easier than brake pads etc but far too many steps to put down here.

Again if you can't find a video or a detailed guide on here. Haynes Manual gives you a great step by step guide. Should get commisson from Haynes me thinks.

Thanks again,

If its easier than brake pads, then i'll have no problem :)

Also, how do you change the leads and coil pack?

I will try get hold of a Haynes Manual.

Unfortunetly not. This needs to go on a Computer. Its not expensive.

My partner has a MK5 Fiesta also. We took it to the local garage who said number two (not the technical number) was miss firing. Therefore I changed the coil pack, spark plugs and leads.

However on inspection. I found that the spark plug wells were full of water which had probably filled up over a year or so. Might be worth checking that. Get the water out and you should be fine, bare in mind the spark plugs may have rusted due to this.

Your water jets let through water as they are not sealed down properly (Ford manufacturing fault). This is why water gets to this area. This is a known/common problem. Seal them down with Silcone should do the trick.

If this does not work, could be coil pack etc.

See how this goes.

Ahh thanks a lot for your reply, is there a guide on how to remove the spark plugs to check?
