    I have a 2001 Ford Taurus and the times the that has happen it had something to did with the oxgen flow. I got the part for $127.00 at after Firestone charged me $1,200.00 to change out sensors that had nothing to do with it and would not refund it. This has happen to me twice along with the front end always shakes really bad since I bought it. I have continually replaced the brakes and struts at different shops and even at the dealer. The car has all sorts of problem and the dealer's only solution is to keep replacing parts that were suppose to be new at the time to no avail.

It could be an engine mapping problem. There should be a fault code generated by this incident.Take your car to a ford dealer to have it checked out. No engine = difficult steering and next to no brakes, not nice.

A miss under load on a Focus is usually a bad or failing coil on one or more of the plugs.Also how old are the spark plugs?
