SOURCE: Engine's orange warning light coming on.

There is a problem with the electronics on your vehicle. Your vehicle is sluggish because it has gone into limp mode. This allows the vehicle to run, but run poorly so you can get it somewhere to be fixed. I'm sorry but I don't have a code book for Fords. But, you can call a Ford dealership and ask for the service department and have them look up the code by number and they can tell you the definition of the code. But, it can relate to many different systems linked to your problem. Electronic parts are very expensive and if you just guess at them it could be costly.
Keep in mind if you buy a part that is electronic and it does not solve the problem they will not allow you to return it. Hope this gives you some guidance to your dilemma.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 ford focus 2.0 zetec dual overhead

all Zetec engines (2.0 DOHC) are NOT interference engines. There are deep reliefs cut into the top of the piston to clear the valves when they are fully extended. There will be no valve damage if the timing belt breaks on a Zetec engine.

What sort of fuel consumption can i expect from a 2006 Toyota Prado 4LT petrol 6 speed manual


best at 10 liters per 100 klms , average around 12 liters /100 klms
fuel consumption depends largely on load , speed , operating conditions , towing, highway/city, off road so an exacting answer is not possible as it all depends on the operator and the driving skills

2001 ford focus rear driver side tire wobbles by hand , what could cause it ?


I can not imagine anyone using any vehicle with a wheel
noticeably leaning in or out

You actually, not only drive that way at low speeds, but at
higher speeds -enough said- makes no sense you would risk
your car & your life doing so

Obviously you paid a shop in a sincere effort to resolve some
issues

Here the thing

You can see & feel the wobble by hand,so both you
& any repair shop can see the problem !!

What sort of shop do you use, that gives you a vehicle
back in that condition & why are you here for us to guess
at something, when you should asking the place that took
your money, what's going on, or maybe check with a lawyer

Car overheating on idle


Does the radiator fan come on before it overheats?
And is it boiling over, or just showing hot on the gauge ?
Is the cooling system full of coolant and no air pockets ?
How do you know the thermostat is ok ?

Does overdrive effect the gas usage in a 2003 Ford Focus


Yes. Overdrive helps get better milage in all vehicles. It is simply put, just an extra gear. When you go through 1st, then 2nd, 3rd, then OD (in automatic - 5th gear in manual)

All it does is allow the engine to run at lower speed while maintaining crusing speed. It does not have a lot of power, it's notsupposed to. It is to save fuel at higher speeds, particularly over distance travel..

In city driving it can slow the changing of gears. Better to turn it off for more low speed control.

Ford fiesta power loss


You need to check for codes to begin with. If no codes then we can start guessing. A code is pretty strait forward. Without a code, hands on will be the only way to diagnose this issue.

Car loosing power


You may have a bad speed sensor or clogged catalytic converter. Best bet is to take it in and get it diagnosed properly or you could be replacing good parts with good parts. Gets expensive this way.

out of balance tires or a seperated cord inside the tire, have it checked ASAP, if the tire is starting to come undone it could blow out, any tire shop will check it for free.

Misfire and eratic idle on Ford Focus petrol 1.8i


motor mounts need replacement and sounds like your cars comp. is about to take a hit and go down
the air flow control unit sounds like it also has has a clog in it and needs to be serviced this is a big one when you get to driving at higher speeds the fan turns off and the air outside controls cooling air/fuel mixture rate sometimes too much air intake can make the vehicle act eratic
