You need to have a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why the light is on.Anything can cause it. if you have one near you,go to autozone, or advanced auto parts,they will usually do it for you.
If not, go to a repair shop or dealer.

I have a 2000 Ford Focus and a friend of mine told me that the serpentine belt has to be changed around 75000-85000 miles as scheduled maintenance. Should I go get my belt changed?

It is never a bad idea to change your serpintine belt as it runs all of the accesories under the hood. Yes I would change it. It is cheap insurance against problems you may have down the road.

The light for the engine light has come on. I have only just brought the car its reg year is 2001.

you need to go get the code read. It the only option. only thing you could of done possibly to make the light come on is maybe left the fuel cap loose.

When this light comes on, it'll either have to do with the coolant or the transmission. You said that your car picks up speed very slowly and will shut off on you as well. When this light comes on, it also means you're only running on two of your four cylinders. Your car is cycling this way in order to prevent further damage to your engine / transmission.

Check your coolant system for low coolant, or a potential leak. Transmission will be trickier to tackle.

Have you actually taken it to a Ford dealership as I think this light is only for their system to pick up, or just to local garages like Walmart and Autozone.
