  3. Hi all hoping you can help me out with my 1.4 mk 1, it runs sweet at high revs, rev too low and it jerks. I have taken it to my dad (ex mechanic and mk2 owner) and within 5 mins of a drive round town he has concluded spark plugs or ht leads, a google search has suggested possible coil pack needed. I am taking it too my dad tomorrow to get it checked over in the light (if it's plugs I will fit platinum, leads are a maintenance item etc) Anyone any other suggestions of what it could be? Suffered the same thing?

    Jerking At Low Revs- Plugs? Ht Leads?

    It's a total pain, my dad helps me out with these things, might have to leave the car with him one day when I am at work

    I would say in my limited experience more like misfire, all but low revs are fine and it has plenty of power. My fiat did the low on power thing and it is nothing like that

    Lizzie (Labrador) is transported in a focus with a dog guard which I think came from the local ford dealer

    Hi :)

    Hi all my name is Andy (also known on here and twitter as flatapex) I will hopefully be driving my new focus from friday, it is currently at a local garage/bodyshop sat waiting to be insured/picked up/the last of the purchase paid. its a y reg focus 1.4 mk1, I come from a family of ford owners, my dad has a classic rochdale gt (1950's kit car with an engine from a ford popular) and a 1.6 focus mk2 and my mum has a fiesta on a 61 plate on motability, fiancee drives a fiat (same as i used to) but has owned a fiesta mk3 and a ka before.

    Hi :)

    Its had the oil sorted (I am buying the car from my mechanic who is also a friend of my dad's) my dad is also a former mechanic (and also former rally driver from the 70s- one of his cars back then was a mk2 escort) Its on 82k at the moment, also had a new clutch and cambelt in the last 12 months, bodywork is having every little imperfection sorted out in January (at my mechanic's expense) and it is in really nice condition. Hopefully it will be a loyal workhorse, my previous car was a fiat stilo which I owned for 8 1/2 years
