Question about 2001 Ford Focus
I have this Ford Focus and each time I drive it, all the way from 1st to 5th it will ****. The more gas I apply the better it goes. It's almost like I'm shifting into the wrong gear sometimes. Only in 5th will it stop.
It will not do this when I'm down shifting. And it won't do it in idle. Only when the car is starting go to.
The RPM meter will bounce up and down and it made me think it was the timing belt/chain/serpentine belt. Can't be sure which one I have. I've had another car that would do that when some of the teeth were missing it would **** upon accelertating.
Check spark plugs and wires. if u have already done this i apologize
