Question about 2000 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I have a 2001 ford focus. Problem started when i tried to drive off and my car started sputtering, died and wouldnt turn on. we replaced the fuel pump and i was able to drive an hour home with no problems. The engine light was on when i picked up my car that day. the next day my car started with the same problem although it would start this time but wont go over 30. friends say transmission but i dont understand how 2 things simultaneously break.

I would give it a tune up spark plugs etc before spending alot of money. most transmission shops do free diagnostics checks.

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.


check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump

Ford Focus Sputters


The "speed sensor" is throwing way too much fuel through the injectors and flooding the cylinders, new spark plugs would burn longer, but still die after a while, so that makes sense... but I think the problem might go a bit deeper into the engine management system than that. You say it does this at a specific temperature, so a loose connection somewhere is possible inside the EMS, something that breaks a sensor connection at that temperature, due to expansion and contraction of metal parts. Try looking for evidence of that.
