Re: 03 focus 2.0 zetec auto wont start
The heated o2 sensor is bad or has a bad connection it is usually the sensor after the catalytic converter and from the description you gave i wold say it is the one after the converter and you need to check any engine speed sensors crank sensors or cam sensors. the crank sensor would be by the crankshaft im not sure where the cam sensor would be and some vehicles wont have one im not sure if yours does

You can check the fluid level of a transmission only while the motor is running while in park or neutral (wheels blocked). Remove the rear dip stick (transmission) and wipe it with a rag, reinsert it completely. Repeat the procedure and note the level, which should be between or in the hash marks (towards the end of dip stick) and add accordingly.
If the level is okay you will have to check with transmission shops and the Ford dealer for quotes ( and check on Google ). The problem you have is either a transmission or computer problem.
The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in
the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud
auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication
that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp
You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to
have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You
also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.
bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary
and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another
transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.
Please check your transmission fluid level. After the engine is warm pull the transmission stick and make sure the level is close to the full line and that the transmission fluid is red and not brown. You may have to change your transmission fluid and screen. If you plan to do it yourself I can advise you on how to change it step by step or you can take it to a transmission shop or dealership for a transmission tune-up. Good Luck
