OK, but what could be causing the poor mileage, about 15-17 miles per gallon? the car is driven stop and go about 50 miles a day and poor mileage sucks with gas prices the way they are.
Thanks again

There should only be 4 wires for the Focus.

As for poor milage, stop and go is the worst thing for mileage... how does it do on the highway? Also when was the last time you changed the fuel filter??

MSD Pug Wires

I just picked up a 2003 SVT Orange with the Euro Pkg. Car is all stock except for a XCAL2 Focus Sport Tune which the previous owner included with the car. It was set for the sport mode program by the last owner. I put a new set of MSD 8.5 Super Conductor Wires #32949 on the car and started it up. It started missing- running rough right away. Would the the sport tune be affected by the new wires? I put the Original Factory Wires back on and the car ran perfectly. Any answers? Defective wires? Thanks

Take the wires off and reinstall them... more than likely you didnt get one on all the way... this is a common problem.

and no the tune wouldnt be effected by the new wires.
