it could have to do with the timing, might be slightly retarded.. or the cylinder could be screwed. you might have to pull off the valve cover and check the rockers, push rods, even maybe the cylinder. or it could be as simple as the connection for the wire in the distributor, might need to be cleaned or changed.

may suggest to check to make sure the injector on cylinder #6 is not leaking

it could be the module that all the plug wires go to, cause ford focus's have that problems some times.
