Check the exhaust compression. Remove the O2 sensors before the cataylic converts and see if it improves. If it does that means your cats are cloged and need to be replaced.

08 ford focus TDI driving sluggish, esp light came on, car went limp and then cut out....sat for a few minutes restarted and drive perfectly....happening often


How many miles on it? Coil-over-plugs and spark plugs may need changed. They can throw electrical interference which can put you in Fail-Safe mode. Happened to me.
If car has over 70K, change the Coil-over plugs and spark plugs. Don't forget to change a fuel filter every 30K also.

My ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.


Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

I have a 2001 Ford Focus with approximately 71,500 miles. It feels like the transmission is slipping.Recently, I was driving on the interstate and the jerking got really bad at a higher rate of speed....


The first thing you should do is go to your local auto parts dealership that offers free computer diagnostics. They'll be able to read and interpret any codes your computer is posting, and that will pinpoint any engine or transmission problems.
Hopefully you simply need a transmission flush. If your transmission fluid is full of garbage, it could certainly cause the jerking you experienced. However, in case it turns out to be more serious, I would recommend limiting how much you drive the vehicle until you've gotten the problem identified.
If it turns out to be your transmission, compare repairing it to your car's Kelly Blue Book value and see if you think the investment is personally worth it. A new transmission will cost you approximately $2200 - $2800.
Keep in mind that trading in a vehicle with serious transmission problems will get you a significantly less trade-in value. That said, your car is nine years old. The choice is up to you.

19 tdi loss of power


I have a 1999 VW golf tdi with intermittent loss of power. The turbo will cut in for a few seconds, then die forcing you to change gear and get a small boost again. The turbo will not boost much past 2200 rpm. The cars computer has been plugged in at the garage and does not show any problems. Various people have said, replace turbo, air mass meter or just simply wash turbo filters in WD40. Can anyone help?
