Have your exhaust system checked for restriction. That may be hard to do, unless you can get someone to come to you, get it towed, or have the wherewithall to do it yourself. Often, a clogged cat converter, will let enough exhaust through to idle when cold, but as the guts of the cat expand, the flow will be cut off. Not always the case, but I've seen it happen enough times to suggest it. Another way to check this, is to remove one or both(depending on your setup,) of the upstream(pre converter) o2 sensors. If this makes a big difference, suspect the cat.Also, when idling, does it start to run rough for a few seconds before it quits? If so, push the brake pedal when it begins to run poorly. An engine with a clogged exhaust will have very poor intake manifold vacuum, therefor, the vacuum assisted power brakes would feel much different. The brake pedal would seem very hard to push, as though the engine were not running. No guarantee,but that gives you some things to check. Let me know if you have any more questions. When I can't lay hands on the car, test it, hear it, or see it, this can be a bit of a process sometimes.Hang in there!

you have either a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump,try the fuel filter first its chaeaper and easier than the fuel pump and you should replace it every 5 years on most cars anyway.

Sounds like the fuel pump going bad. You will need to check to make sure you have the correct fuel preasure for at least 10 mins. You can find a fuel preasure tester at any auto parts store. Same thing happened in my 2002 Escalade, replaced the fuel pump for around $650.00. Good luck

Sounds like either you have a clogged fuel line and or clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump is failing. What happens when the vehicle runs the fuel pump heats up, as it heats up it produces less and less fuel for your car. Eventually ti stops working until its cool again on faulty pumps. Given the age of your vehicle I would say you need to replace both pump and filter.

Ok a quick check. When the engine cuts out and you go for restart it dies within 5 seconds. Next time put the ignition at position 2 (on but not starting) and wait one minute, then start the car. If the engine again runs for 30 seconds before cutting off this tells you its is a fuel problem. If the fuel is supplied slowly it fills the carburettor fuel bowls and when the car starts it quickly uses up these local reservoirs of fuel faster than they can be replenished. When you try to restart immediately there is only a tiny amount of fuel and so it used up almost immediately. By leaving the ignition on 2 for while it gives the pump time to fill the carburettor bowls and this takes a while longer to run down when the engine starts. Just before moving on does the car have a choke OK remove the low tension connection to the coil, basically remove any chance of a spark. Put a big old towel around the carb. Now remove the fuel line at the carburettor and put ignition on 2 to engage the starter pump. Listen to pump operation and look at the rate of fuel being pushed from the disconnected fuel pipe. If the flow is slow check on pump and filters.

During hot days in summer, car bogs and dies now in spring.


your fuel pump is going.

there was a 10 year unlimited mileage warranty on 2000 focus for this issue, but not sure if 2001 was included. The internal filters in the fuel pump clog and starve the pump. New stlye filters went into prodction but not sure if all of 2001 had the new design.
