Try a fuel line/injector cleaner it may be blockage in the fuel lines or injectors or if you are in an area where rust is a problem may also be a bit of git clogging fuel flow from pump

2010 subaru forester engine cuts out


consider this
when at the stop lights , you will have your foot on the brake as it will still be in drive or in gear and you don't want the car to move
a simple test is to apply the hand brake to stop the car and don't touch the foot brake
if it idles ok but cuts out when you apply the foot brake , replace the brake booster as it has a vacuum leak that is causing the problem
you can do this test in the garage by starting in neutral and allowing the engine to idle , then apply the foot brake
iof it dies it is the booster

My engine will suddenly cut out whilst driving, but usually when I am waiting at lights?


if it cuts out when at lights or stop signs and your foot is on the brake , it is very possible that the brake booster is leaking air
test that by running the engine at idle with the hand brake on and if it is ok but fails when you apply the foot brake , then replace the booster
the advice to run the engine on a long drive is not really good advice as the ECM ( if it is fuel injected) will reset the tuning level for the new fuel with in 5 minutes of constant speed driving

What would cause engine yo die at a stop light and not start again. The engine almost turns over but doesnt.


engines stopping at lights can sometimes be attributed to a vacuum leak in the brake booster
test by idling the engine with the hand brake on and no foot brake then apply the foot brake and if the engine dies then it is the brake booster
hard to restart may be the vacuum leak if you still have your foot on the brake.

My car stops verry often especially when i reduce the speed to the traffic light.Could be the fuell filter?or the petrol got dirt in it.


I suspect a vacuum leak -probably in the brake booster-which is making the engine run lean and cut out. Try coasting up to the lights with out your foot on the brake and see if it cuts out when you apply the brake to stop. Run fault codes to check for a sensor fault.

The engine ramps up and down both at idle and when driving. I actually lose power and it almost feels like it is running on 3 cylinders, step on gas and it revs up but takes a few seconds to actually...


Sounds like you have a couple of problems. I would start with checking all your vaccum lines with a fine tooth comb. I'd also replace your upstream 02 sensor (the one in the engine compartment, just below the windshield wiper fluid reservoir) sensor and clean your throttle body.

How do i use cruise control on focus


Hello,
First the vehicle has to be operating at least 35mph. There will be two sets of switches, one set is to the left and the other set is to the right of the horn on the steering wheel. The switches on the left will be labeled on/off, the ones on the right we be labeled Coast/Accel/Resume..

At a steady highway speed press the ON switch, (at the left hand side of the horn) This will activate and turn the speed control system ON...

Then you have to set and adjust your desired speed...

To SET YOUR DESIRED speed , press and hold the accel switch (Right side of Horn) until your desired speed has been reached and then release the switch.. Speed control will now be on, activated and set, you will be in cruise mode..

If you need to coast due to possible traffic, press and hold the coast switch as long as you need to.. This is like taking your foot off of the accelerator pedal.. When you let go of the coast switch you will return to you set cruising speed.

Stepping on the brake pedal at any time will deactivate the system.. If you step on the brake, and then want to return to your previous set cruising speed... All you have to do is press resume...

I hope this has helped you? You can find detailed speed control activation instructions in your 2005 Ford Focus Owners manual.. If you did not receive your owners manual when you bought the vehicle.. You can purchase one at your local Ford, Lincoln or Mercury dealership..

Engine suddenly revs when stopped & @ idling


sounds like one of the metal arms connected to the engine may be getting stuck some how. have someone get in car and press on gas when car is off while you watch engine to see what is moving, then check those arms to see if there is any possible obstructions or knicks or something on them

The orange light is probably the pads wear indicator showing that the pads are worn out and the cutting out probably you need your car serviced and tune.
