Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Focus shut off while slowing to a stop.

While slowing down at a stop sign, the car shut off. When I tried to restart it, nothing would happen, instrument lights were off, no sound, nothing. The radio would turn on, the interior lights work, the remote would unlock and lock the doors and I just replaced the battery a week ago.

    when turning onto the entrance ramp to the interstste, the car died, the wipers started going, the warning lights came on that the engine was off, the radio had no power, the windows had no power, the door locks would work and the remote worked to lock and unlock the car, but it would not turn over, nothing. A few days eariler i was driving down the highway and hit a bump, the trans-axel light came on and it surged like it had no power but kept going. It is a 2001 focus, i have had it one week it has 42,000 miles.

Ford focus problem


Probably warped the cylinder head or at the very least the cylinder head gasket is totally gone. Get a compression check, look to see if there is oil in your coolant tank or white gunge in your oil filler cap these are both signs of failure due to overheating.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I have a 2003 Jaguar XJR V8 Supercharge, and the ASC trac not available and Failsafe engine mode sign came on. The car engine shut down and I was able to restart the car, it happened when the car was...


As most likely know the engine in your Jag is controlled by a computer, when it senses a serious fault in any of the systems it monitors it can trigger a shut down with a restart, the shut down and needed restart is the same as rebooting a computer for a problem that has occurred in the system. What must be done now is to have the local dealer or a very well equipped shop run a scan of the computers memory, there will be fault codes stored for they event and warning lights. So get it tested.
