Ok I got it replaced and car is running smooth and petrol consumption seems better and there is no misfire. I think my cousin said there's some kind of build up in the exhaust that will clear after a few days. So thanks for the advice. Slight bit of bad news I hit a pothole and dented my driver side alloy wheel and have a slow puncture!

Thanks for the advice artscot79 , I will be careful when buying the parts. I did buy Bosch spark plugs from this place. They must have genuine parts there.

I saw a coil pack for £18 at the gsf website and the ignition cables for £16. I'm going there in the morning then to the garage my cousin works to get it fitted. He mentioned to not start the car after installation and to clear the codes like ChrisH mentioned. Fingers crossed it gets sorted! Then I can enjoy my car more haha

Hi everyone.

So got it checked yesterday and the computer said its a coil 4 error. I am getting a new coil pack tomorrow and hopefully that will fix the misfire and fuel consumption problems!

What about if i get a software dashboard update from ford? I havent smelt any fuel from the exhaust yet but it misfires when in stationary. Something it didnt do when i first had the car. Had it about 2 weeks now.
