Ford focus running poorly and now engine management light is coming on intermittently. the car runs but makes a stuttering fluttering noise under acceleration and has no power.


It might be many things. It could be a faulty sensor, there is plenty of them, or fuel filter or anything really. Get it plugged (obd2) to read the fault codes, any car garage will help you or you can get Bluetooth obd2 device from eBay or Amazon for a few quid and read it yourself with appropriate app for your smartphone.
Anyway, there is no simple answer to your question without seeing the car by someone knowledgeable.

Fiat punto 2002 stutters when driven


The amber MiL light, lights on a number of problems. You need to get it sorted, you could miss a serious fault, and cause More damage. Needs to go on a code reader. From past experience with Punto's, the stutter could be a ignition coil fault (quite common) or a spark plug, both will cause the light to come on. Good Luck.

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.


Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

Your cat should last quite a while now it is replaced. I recommend testing coil packs and module. Change plugs and wires and double check your vacuum hoses.

Runs rough once it warms up


With having that many miles and the light being on with a code of O2 sensor, I'd say start there. Make sure which O2 sensor it is first, pre or post convertor. It's getting close to another tune up, but check your plugs first.
