Your catalytic converter could be plugged up. try reving engine in neutral and if it sounds labored or slow then this could be your problem and have the exhaust checked. If exhaust cant escape out of your tail pipe then you cant accelerate quickly or at all.

Drive cycle reset


Drive Cycle resets to reset the OBDII testing phases are very specialized to the year, model and engine of your car. So I can only speak generally. Start the car from fully cold and let it idle for about 15 minutes, then put the car into gear and drive it for about 5 minutes at 35 mph, then get on a highway and drive at about 60 mph for 15 minutes, come off the highway and drive around 40 mph for 3 minutes, come to a complete stop (like a stop sign) wait 30 seconds, drive off again up to 40 mph for 4 minutes - and repeat the last 2 steps (going up to 40 mph) about 3-5 times. Then repeat the last two steps going up to only 25 mph. Then come to a complete stop in your driveway and let the car idle for 10 minutes with the a/c on . After this is done, hook up a code scanner and see if it reset the modes to "ready".

My miata shakes at 40 mph


Although you didn't say if it feels like the shaking is coming from a wheel, it sounds to me like you have a bad tire even though they are new. Take it back to where you got the tires and have them take a look. If they can't see anything, ask them to take it for spin.

it may just need a good tune up, also check the hose from the air filter to the engine, if it has a crack or hole in it then it will be sucking to much air and will cause the engine to labor

Car is missing and cutting out. Also It has no power.


You may have bumped a wire or vacuum hose causing your problem. Look in the areas where the plugs and wires are and check all connections and hoses. Look for missing or damaged wires and hoses. Be sure your routing of plug wires is correct.

Sounds like a fuel pump to me. Some focus' have an extended warranty on them from Ford due to so many problems. Fuelumps won't always set trouble codes.
