Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

While driving car tries to stall but continues to run

I'll be driving down the road and the car almost cuts out but doesn't. I'm trying to solve the problem before it actually does cut out. What would cause this? I let it warm up for at least 15 minutes every morning.

    I have the same problem, but mine began actually cutting off. It's like it stops receiving gas, then just cuts off. It only happens when I've been driving it in hot weather for at least 45 minutes to an hour. It has been to the shop 3 times for the same problem. they changed the air flow sensor twice, but that didn't solve it. They finally broke down and said they couldn't figure it out. The only thing I haven't tried changing is the catalytic converter. Maybe that's what will solve it. Until then, I just deal with it.

Ford had recall on fuel filters on these cars..Also you will want to get the compresstion checked on all clyinders, This is to check for an value seat that is cracked and getting ready to drop into your clyinder.

When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

2004 seems to loose fuel pressure periodically while driving down the road


i have a supercharger in mine and if i run less than superios gas it will do this as well, good bet use shell premium gas and that should stop if it doesnt try replacing your fuel filter its just under the body of the car at the front edge of the driver side door :)

this sounds like a bad connection or a bad VSS sensor... either way it needs replacement/repair.. if the tach sends 0 info to the ECM the car will quit or run in an open loop causing it to run real poor... have someone like Auto Zone??? scan it for free and give you the computer code results.... this will help you unravel the mystery of the stalling.

Driving down the road my truck stalls and the oil


First you must find the engine oil pressure sensor, remove the sensor and repalce it with a gauge. Run the engine until hot and record the reading if the reading is between12 and 25 PSI replace the sensor, if the pressure continually drops as the engine warms up then you have a major issue, meaning there is serious engine wear and a rebuild is nesassary.

95 Aurora, Stalling while driving anyone know why?


i had the same problem with a little more symptoms, that you have reported.
i found that there was a recall on he fuel line. the stainless steal line wares down and begins to leak. This issue affects the oil pressure and causes the car to stall.

1990 Buick Lesabre keeps stalling


Check ecm for part number 1228253. If it has this number in it replace it with a 16198264. Gm had trouble with that ecm for a cutting off problem. Mine would stall driving down the road and when I would put it neutral it would start back up and not have any trouble for the rest of the day. You must set the tps with a volt meter or scan tool.

F350 2000 stalling and sputtering while driving after running a while or runs fine


Many possibilities:
Is it a Diesel?
Camshaft position sensor recall may cover it.
Gas or Diesel:
Fuel Pump and/or relay.
Fuel Filter.

Engine codes could help if Check Engine Light is on.
