    Default Help need with my ford focus

    I know this is not a focus forum, but I dont want to have to go and join one, so if any of the amazing mechanics we have on here could help me, I'd really appreciate it.

    Our other car is a 05 plate 1.6 focus zetec. It has devolped an occasional rough cold start and a miss fire at about 2000 revs. Ive looked it up and it seems the DPFE sensor is on it way out, but when I google a pic of it, it comes up with a rectangle box at the cantre back of the engine bay with 2 pipes comimg of it, or something a little different if you have an '01 model. Mine engine bay has neither of these
    The only thing I can see that looks like it has the correct wiring coming of it is on the left hand side (as you look at it) but it is round and has a small square box on top of it.
    Is this what I'm looking for??

    Thanks very much in advance

    Do you keep it serviced? At the age its at if the spark plugs have'nt been changed i would try that first.

    Thanks
    Yes I do keep it serviced, but Ive not done this one myself, so will have to check if my mechanic has done the spark plugs. Ive read that the sensor ususally goes about EVERY 30K miles, can this really be true??

    Thanks John
    I havent had it on a code reader, just googled the symptons and the DPFE sensor failure matches the problems I'm having.
