Anybody know any decent mobile car-mechanics?

My '04 Fiesta has just decided to start juddering.  In my untrained opinion, it feels as if 1 spark plug is misfiring/firing weak (if that's possible ??)).

Every time I get my hands dirty under a bonnet I fix 1 problem I cause 2 more :B

Ade. I have an 04 fiesta too. Mine has done this twice and the aa tell me it is i known fault. Its a black thing that the four cable things go into. the recommended action is a new black plastic thing and new cables and plugs. The aa actually carry the part in all their vans because it happens to so many fiestas.
In my experience it gets worse to the extent that the car is virtually undriveable. Looks an easy job though if you are mechanically minded.
As you can tell I am shyte with cars.

Or has it got a distributor in which case its the distributor cap, HT leads and plugs.
A crack in the cap will allow leakage of the high voltage through arcing causing a weak spark and missing
worse in damp weather

He's is a 1.4, and pretty sure these don't have a distributer.
