I have a 2003 ford focus that I have a pinging engine sound during acceleration or going uphill. The car also hesitates while driving at a steady speed on a flat road. It will also just stop (maybe 5-10...


Hello, Thomas. Check the knock sensor. This sensor is suppose to send signal to the computer if the engine start to knocking or pinging. The computer will change the setting on various other components to keep from doing this knocking or pinging. I remember in the older cars that weren't fuel injected but carbureted and had to burn high octane fuel. If one put low octane in the fuel tank the engine would knock/ping, and continue to run after the ignition was turned off. Try the knock sensor or do an diagnosis test on it. Look in your owner manual it tell how to self diagnosis test on you car. GB....stewbison

Fuel problem


first i would cover the basics. change the fuel filter, next change the spark plugs, careful this car takes special spark plugs. probably have to get from toyota. next clean the throttle body, pull air nozzle off and open the butterfly so you can spray throttle body cleaner in their and clean with toothbrush. also dont be alarmed after cleaning the throttle body and changing the fuel filter it will be hard starting, hold the gas pedal half way.

Hesitates


Try the fuel filter. If you have had the plugs, wires changed it may be the fuel filter.

Severe hesitation, bucking


Sounds like the cat may be blocked. Stand at the tail pipe and get someone to rev it. If you get a whooshing sound from the exhaust, investigate further up the pipe.
