SOURCE: After driving for an hour

I had the same issues for most of last summer. Finally, I replaced the Plug Wires and the car has been working like a charm since. The other problem I found was that I had the wrong plugs. It seems there are only two types for the Focus, the local parts guys quoted me the incorrect part number and my fuel efficiency went to ****.

SOURCE: loses of power and engine miss

it may be fuel pump ? how much fuel is in the tank ? these trucks are famous for their fuel pumps overheating when the fuel level gets below half or sometimes evem a quarter tank. if the fuel tank is full you may want consider replaceing the fuel filter (as a good routine maitenance procedure)and see what happens then.

From what you are describing, if it's not the fuel pump, it very well may be the electrical ignition system. Here's an article describing your situation somewhat. I really think it is the cause of your problem:

This could also be a faulty fuel pump relay. I had a Honda Prelude that would not restart when hot, but if I let the engine bay cool down for 10 minutes, it would start no problem.

SOUND LIKE ENGINE GETTING TOO HOT.HAVE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE CHECK USING HAND HELD INFRA RED THERMOMETER OR SCAN TOOL.IF ENGINE GETTING TOO HOT CHECK COOLANT LEVEL.REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.MAKE SURE FRONT GRILLE AND RADIATOR CORES AND CONDENSOR CORES NOT STOPPED UP WITH DEBRIS AND LEAVES RESTRICTING AIR FLOW.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD HAVE RADIATOR FLUSHED AND ENGINE BLOCK FLUSHED SO COOLANT WILL CIRCULATE PROPERLY.

Car not starting - Intermittent


intermitten problems are the worse, when it wont start check fuel pressure with a gauge, and then check for spark, i have spent days on problems such as this, what you have to find is what is missing, fuel ,spark, is maybe coolant leaking into one or more cyls, i have seen air in the fuel system that only cause problems when under hood temp is high, open the hood and it cools enough to to start, hope this helps

After driving for around 30 minutes, the brake


That sounds like the "Porportioning valve" is defective.
You may want to go to your local library and check out a Chilton's, or some other repair manual for the "how to" to fix yourself or take it to a tech you can trust.

Hello, I purchased a 2003 Hyundai XG350 last month. When I start the car, put AC or defrost on, and then start driving there is a screeching noise that lasts for 10 seconds and then goes away. If I stop...


See if it goes away when you turn the A/C off. The a/c comes on when you sre in the defrost so yo don't hit the windshield with hot air. The screaching is more than likely the A/C clutch trying to engage, that why it was overlooked or ignored by the mechanic. It is a common thing. The battery should be allowed to recoup from the starting of the car which a few minutes of running woll help so the a/c clutch gets full battery voltage to function.. Turning on the defrost and /or the A/c after about 3 minutes of warm up. Open your hood and have someone turn the a/c on and off, you can hear and sctually see the a/c clutch doing its irritating thing.But keep your fingers out off the engine and don't lean over it with loose clothing. Good Luck, Ned
