Help with focus tune-up

I am going to do a tune-up on my 2000 Ford Focus. It is making a horrible
missing noise. It has 89000 miles at present. I believe I might have a bad
spark plug wire. I would be interested to hear advice from other owner's on
their own tune-ups

Tia,

Larry

Re: Help with focus tune-up

If you have an ohmeter you can ohm the sparkplug wires and determine if one
is higher than the others. You will need to use the recommended plug and set
the gap with a gap gauge.

Re: Help with focus tune-up

Thanks for the advice. In the past we have observed an spark in one of the
plug wires and the car sometimes will start run very smooth after about 30
miles.
