Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Changed spark plugs on an 01 ford focus because it kept misfiring, now something's wrong with maybe getting gas to it.. It got me a few miles then had to press gas pedal to the floor and it would only go like 10 mph and I was pressing it to the floor..

What you want to do is isolate the problem. You want to disconnect the throttle cable with the engine off. Then move the part that the throttle cable was attached to by hand.
The part that remains on the engine should not bind up. If it binds you want to remove the airduct to the metal piece it attaches to.
Then move the engine part again and see if a flap is moving or binding. There is an electrical part called a TPS which attached to the shaft of the flap. It has 2 screws and 1 electric plug. If this part seems to be sticking it is bad. It should move smoothly and needs to be replaced.
If the engine part moves smoothly without the throttle cable attached, then all the binding is in the cable. You can try spraying WD40 into the old cable, but a new cable would be best.
