Question about 2004 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Fixed engine problem, engine light still on

On my 2004 Ford Focus the engine light came on, it flashed off and on. The car was jolting and had problems accelerating.

We did fix the problem..... it was the coil pack

but

the engine light is still on (not flashing) but still on.

Is there something still wrong with the car or does the check engine light need to be reset or will it go off eventually?

You can do both IF there is nothing wrong with your car it will go off on its own usually between 2 and 4 hours of driving. Otherwise it may need to get reset if it still thinks there is a problem

Where is power steering resevoir on focus 2006 1.6 diesel


There was an issue with the steering in that 04-11 focus... let me see if I can find the problems they've had for you.

Ford Focus fuel pipe leak (2004-2011 cars)
Cars built between July 2004 and February 2005 could have had problems with their fuel return pipes leaking. The pipes were made from material that degraded over time, allowing fuel to seep out.
Ford Focus wiper motor problem (2004-2011 cars)
On early second-generation cars built between April 2003 and March 2005, there were issues reported with the wiper motor. Water could enter the motor through the arm spindle, and if it contained salt, could short-circuit it and cause the motor to overheat. This could lead to trim melting around the motor.

Ford Focus engine failure problem (2004-2011 1.6 TDCi cars)
1.6 TDCi Focus models built between February and June 2004 might have problems with their engines, causing them to cut out. Misaligned oil feeds between the cylinder heads and camshaft bearings reduced oil flow, causing premature wearing of the camshaft bearings and engine seizure.
Ford Focus brake pedal problems (2004-2011 cars)
Cars built between November 2005 and December 2006 could have developed problems with their brake pedals. In particularly cold weather, the pedal could become stiff, as the non-return valve in the pump began to stick.
Ford Focus roll-over protection problems (2004-2011 CC cars)
On some Ford Focus CC models it was found that there were issues with the roll-over protection system. Securing bolts holding the system in place were either loose or not fully tight. Therefore the protection would not be fully effective. Ford should have fixed this for free, so make sure the work has been carried out.
Ford Focus cooling fan problems (2004-2011 1.6 TDCi estate car)
On some Focus 1.6 TDCi estates built between July 2004 and December 2006 there were problems with the cooling fans. Where roads are particularly salty, corrosion could easily occur, reaching as far as the control module. In extreme cases this could cause it to overheat, which could lead to fire.
Ford Focus rear hub bolt problems (2004-2011 cars)
On some Ford Focus models built between February and April 2007 there were problems with the rear hub bolts. They could come loose because they weren't made to the correct design specification.
Ford Focus power steering problems (2004-2011 cars)
Ford Focus models built between April and May 2008 could have had problems with their power steering. Some of the hoses fitted were not to the required specification. The hoses could degrade and allow hydraulic fluid to seep out, which could either cause the power steering to fail or, in more extreme cases, cause fire when the fluid became hot.
Ford Focus risk of fire problem (2004-2011 cars)
Hatchback and estate 1.6 TDCi Ford Focus models, manual and automatic, built between January 2006 and January 2007 may have a risk of fire unless they've had their cooling fans checked. Salty roads could lead to corrosion, overheating and fire if not sorted.
Ford Focus water leaks (2004-2011 cars)
On second-generation cars, some owners have reported water leaking into the cabin. Check any sunroof or window seals before you buy. Also look for damp carpet inside, because it could have become mouldy if left untreated.
Every one of these issues should have been remedied by Ford for free, so make sure the work has been carried out.

My 2004 ford focus check engine light when on, what can I do?


Take the car to Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts. They have a code scanner that can tell you what the check engine light means. They do that for free.

2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving


A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.

My ford focus' check engine light just came on on the way home from work and is flashing periodically car seems to be running ok so far can you help


flashing check engine lights mean that there is a critical failer that could cause severe damage. they should not be taken lightly. a missfire can cause the light to flash. the best thing to do is take car to a shop or an auto parts store to get the check engine light read. check engine lights dont always tell you exactly what is rong, but this will give a good direction to start in. a check engine code would be helpfull in diagnoseing the cars problem.

Ford Focus engine warning light on


Check the pcv hose from the intake manifold to pipe with the car running. They get soft with age and will collapse while the engine is running. Just fixed my 2004 for this problem. Remove battery cable for a few minutes to reset ecm. Also a loose fuel cap will turn light on also.

Check coil for cracks and weak spark on one side. Check pcv hose that connects to the intake manifold as they will collapse and leak. It will turn the light on. Check while running.
