Hi, welcome to Focus Fanatics?

Is the kick something you can hear? Can you physically feel movement, or does it accelerate stronger (or slower) when it kicks? If it's physical, I wonder if you might have a bad motor mount. If the engine feels like it's sputtering out, perhaps a bad fuel filter or fuel pump not delivering the fuel properly.

In regards to the oil burning, are you noticing a lower oil level on the dip stick? Or do you see where oil is leaking? I'm not familiar with the 1.6, but the 2.0 Zetec have a common issue of valve cover gaskets going bad.

You feel the kick without any noise just like moving. when you push accelarate pedal its kicking like something its cut and leave cut and leave and then when you have 70 speed that kick disappear. For oil i dont know everything is fine but it burn it, if there is a problem with gaskets then must be the coils black or it will be on the oil but its very clean like a new and have white normally smoke no black no oil.
