2004 ford focus ac blows warm when briskly accelerating. not full throttle. moderate acceleration no problem. temp change to warm is fast, 2 seconds, but back to cold, after letting off the gas, takes...


this is by design. under load, the computer will deactivate the air conditioning in order to take the load of the compressor off of the engine, thereby getting more power for required acceleration. the a c light will remain illuminated etc, and after you finish accelerating the air conditioning will resume normal operation.

Ford focus 1.6 zitec petrol, engine warning light flashing, engine chugging, very high fuel consumption, fumes smell when stationary, exhaust seems ok, recently change speed sensor and coil pack?


try the air filter first and the intake.the spark plugs then and after all go to a garage for checking compression timing and the head gasket.

Ford Focus Deisel chokes on acceleration


Hi mate.

This sounds like a fuel problem.

Some one may have have filled up with petrol. If so you will have to drain the feul tank and change your feul filter.

If only diesel has been put into the tank then carry on as follows until you solve the problem.

Change your fuel filter and air cleaner for a start.

Check your timing.

If you still have the problem, then have your injectors cleaned and reset.

If the problem is still there then you will have to have the fuel pump reconditioned.

You can also check your leak off pipes between the injectors to see if they are in good condition.

I trust this will help you.

Slow acceleration from stop and when driving (trying to pass)


I have the same car. So far no problems with the Transmision. I had the Trans oil change out every 60 K Sure sounds like you need to get the Transmision checked. Is the fault light on. I have invested ina fault code reader sure is worth it. 
Good luck.  Vilmos
