I have a 2000 ford focus 2.0 zetec dual overhead cam with a broken timing belt at low speed. Is this engine a non interference engine?


all Zetec engines (2.0 DOHC) are NOT interference engines. There are deep reliefs cut into the top of the piston to clear the valves when they are fully extended. There will be no valve damage if the timing belt breaks on a Zetec engine.

Clutch problems


IT might be that the pressure plate fingers broke or the cluth plate has disintegrated. You will have to take the gearbox out and inspect the clutch.

Slow acceleration from stop and when driving (trying to pass)


I have the same car. So far no problems with the Transmision. I had the Trans oil change out every 60 K Sure sounds like you need to get the Transmision checked. Is the fault light on. I have invested ina fault code reader sure is worth it. 
Good luck.  Vilmos

Loss of electrical power


think this a problem for dealer mechanic with product knowledge,because all lights coming on then loss of power sounds like it could be an ECU fault being triggered by a sensor,or just a component in the ECU breaking down .It would need the computer connecting then running till fault shows up .sorry i couldnt give an instant fix
