I have a 2000 Ford Focus Zetec- 78,000 miles. Acceleration is fine (now) but the car seems to judder & misfire whenever I slow/ change down. Very occasionally the engine cuts out completely & the steering locks. Steering is also heavy on occasion.
The misfiring used to happen when accelerating but this stopped when I replaced the spark plugs. I also replaced the fuel filter. I can't afford to take it to Ford so I need some help- should I try new plug leads? Or is there something serious the matter?
