96 1.6 jumpy at low revs, - redworminator
when i drive it, it needs to be revved or it keeps jumping and missing, its been like this for a while, didn't know if it needs a service or could be a common problem.

Lots of common problems for this, but................

Never look for anything before basic service carried out.

When was last service date and time. What is current mileage?

Could just be plugs, fuel filter etc.

Dont try and cure anything that isnt broken!

HT leads are a common problem with Zetec Escorts. I replaced mine at 90k after it started missing. I own a 97 1.6
