Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus

1 Answer

NO run The engine light came on about two weeks ago. We then had a sudden drop in tempreture. It is -32c. The car will start but will not stay running. When it stalls it sounds as though the exhaust system is pressured up. It takes a few minutes for the hissing from the exhaust to stop. I have a baterry charger on it. My first thought was water in the fuel. Then i thought maybe the baterry was damaged or the altinator. I though some gas line antifreeze in it to maybe break up any water build up. Still not running. What do you sudjest?

    Sounds almost like your EGR Valve is stuck shut, or the control for it not working.

Sounds like you have water frozen in your exhaust system (muffler) or your catalytic converter i plugged due to an over rich fuel mixture overheating the catalytic converter.

Engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.


the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.
