2001 ford focus stalls andloss of power when i come to a stop

There is a recall on this car due to the fuel pump being defective clogging the fuel filter but ford is not very good about wanting to honor the recall. car is at dealer right now and they are saying just like i thought they would that it is not the fuel pump. but wanting me to replace parts in my car saying that they are bad when my husband just changed 2weeks ago. so if anyone has had or is having the same problem let me know.

There is a recall for the fuel pump, but only applies to certain focuses according to the build date. if your car doesn't fall within the build date, it is a customer pay item... the car may very well need a fuel pump, i would say that is probably the best possibility. the other thing about recalls is they do expire, or if the car has already had the recall done you are not able to have the recall performed again. if it has the ztec engine i have seen valve cover gaskets blow out and soak the spark plugs with oil, this also causes the problem your having.hope this helps you and good luck---also what parts does the dealer think it is?

Focus That stalls


you need a new fuel pump. There was a program to pay for this for 10 years I think for some 2000-01 Foucs. Here's what the letter from Ford says: December 2003 Program 03N01 "Attached is a letter announcing the details of a no-charge program Ford Motor Company will be conducting concerning your vehicle's fuel pump. We have found some 2000-01 Ford Focus vehicles may experience symptoms of engine hesitation, loss of power, surging and other similar symptoms ...... as a rsult of progressive contamination of the fuel pump filters." (in the fuel pump). You may reduce the liklihood of the symptoms occurring by kee[ing the tank at least half full. My recollection is the program was good for 10 years. Ask your local Ford Dealer if your car is eligible for this program.

The "speed sensor" is throwing way too much fuel through the injectors and flooding the cylinders, new spark plugs would burn longer, but still die after a while, so that makes sense... but I think the problem might go a bit deeper into the engine management system than that. You say it does this at a specific temperature, so a loose connection somewhere is possible inside the EMS, something that breaks a sensor connection at that temperature, due to expansion and contraction of metal parts. Try looking for evidence of that.

Engine turns but won't start


What year is the focus, And have you checked the ford recalls on the car? I know that when I owned my focus there was a recall with the fuel pump in the tank and i had somewhat of the same problem myself. If your only getting gas to only ONE spark plug, your issue probably lies somewhere in your fuel delivery system (i.e. Fuel pump, fuel filter etc. etc.). Which would also describe the " It stalls out then the engine won't start for along time again.". Let me know, I'll keep trying to troubleshoot with you. Good luck!
