Question about 2006 Ford Focus

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Ford Focus V4. The car starts fine but everytime I slow down or come to a complete stop the car shuts off. The check engine light comes on shortly after I start the car. Not sure what this could be.

Take it to your local autoparts store(prefferably Autozone) and tell them your check engine light is on. they will run a diagnostics free of charge. But note: the light must be lit(check engine light) when you go there or else they wont be able to run the diagnostics if the check engine light is off. this should narrow down your problem

My 2006 f150 makes a roaring sound at random times when driving and will not quit until completely stopped then you can feel something disengage.


when the sound starts check the temp gauge and see where it is at
I'm thinking that you have a viscous fan hub and it cuts in when standing at lights or slow traffic or heavy loads at slow speeds
it will keep running until the engine temp comes down or you switch the engine off
or it could be a electrical controlled fan and the noise on shut down is the relay clicking off

Ford Focus c max 1.8 petrol idle problems


This can be caused by a defective Maf sensor and coolant sensor, they will not trigger a code because as long as there is a signal the computer doesn't know the actual engine running condition enough to say the signal from the 2 sensors is wrong, this goes double for MAF sensors, another area is the idle speed control motor.. I want you to read about the problem at the link below.

With a multimeter check the voltage at battery terminals. Should be more than 12.6Volts when engine off, and at least 14 volts with engine on. If the battery voltage is less than 12.6 volts then you need a new battery. If the voltage is less than 14 Volts with running engine, then the alternator is not working properly. A stop at AutoZone might help. They scan codes, and check alternators for free.
