Re: AU XR8 Series 1 ignition lead problem
Had a similar, but more intermittent fault with my AU2. Initially Ford said they ignored the fault code because it was a code that normally came up and it wasn't the leads (of course not at that price). Then when a Tickford rep came for a drive with me, it finally misfired after hours of driving. He ordered that a new set of plugs, leads and coils be fitted. It never misfired or hesitated again. Sometime later I spoke to Ford again and they admitted they did have some lead problems. The other thing I had (and a couple of others I know of) which made it go poorly, was a faulty air charge sensor. This was more on general acceleration though.
