Fiesta Missfire when hot

Postby Ldoyle » Thu Jun 01, 2017 12:15 pm

Hi Guys

I think this is my first post on the forum. I have used the search function and could not find the answer, so here it goes.

my wife has a 2005 fiesta Duratec 1.4i. the car tends to misfire when hot. my immediate thought would be ignition coil. I’ve replaced the coil twice as I thought the new coil might be faulty as well. I've also replace the fuel pump. Replacement coils used are Lucas coils and fuel pump is Bosch. What else could it be?

Your assistance and advice would be highly appreciated.

**** question but are you running the correct spark plug heat range?
When does it happen, light and high load?

My girlfriend's 2010 Fiesta 1.4 had similar problems. Check the plug leads for corrosion and when were the spark plugs last replaced?
