Bad gas or bad injectors


Make sure you have the Motorcraft Ford recommended Spark plugs. Check the fuel line pressure (between 2.5 and 3.0 bars pressure). Check for damaged or squashed fuel return pipe from the fuel rail back to the fuel tank. If there is any restriction in this return pipe it creates extra pressure at the injectors.
