Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I also have the same code on my 2003 focus. It also does not start very well when it is cold. The car will back fire and sputter for about 30 sec before it warms up and smooths out. I have had it into the Ford Dealership 2 times and they say the runners are working fine and cannot find anything wrong.
Forget that Dealer. They do not want your business because, they are capable of repairing both your vehicles. You need to find a good repair facility near your home, before you need one. Should have done that before dealer warrantee was up. You can't solve theses issues unless your a knowledgable auto technician. Do not drive any of todays vehicles with check engine lights etc on dash and all the other issues you have. Everyone is trying to save money hoping things go away. We no longer live in the 1960's. Theses are expensive cars to buy and maintain. There are very few so called auto mechanics with even basic electrical knowledge to even attempt to solve todays technology on a vehicle and no training avail for them. Did you drive the vehicle with a tech riding with you? Did they drive it with you riding in it? Was it acting up when you took it in? Forget the service writer at the dealership and get the person who has the task and knowledge of your veh systems. If they don't mention a road test with you present, they have no intention of finding your problems. I used to own a Trans Repair Shop. You got drilled for a half hour and I needed a years history on the vehicle or I turned the job away. Also I was very clear on the costs involved as well as the % of even finding an issue.
