Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

2003 Ford Fous check engine light came on

Today after turning a corner, my car cut out briefly when starting to speed up, then the check engine light came on. Now when I start it up and drive it, it seems to not want to change gears (it is automatic). when applying gas to speed up, seems to hesitate. Could this be a serious, expensive problem, or something easy to remedy? Thank you, and not sure what all information you need. Thank you, TC

If you have an Autozone near you, they will scan your car for error codes for free. Try going there and have them scan your car. Once they have the code that is causing the check engine light to come on they can tell you which part the computer is detecting as causing a problem. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101

Kia sedona 2003. Engine management light comes on briefly when under load.


FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD CHECKED AND IF IT IS LOW THE PUMP WILL NEED REPLACED.OTHERWISE I WOULD BE CHECKING FOR A EXHAUST RESTRICTION,BEST METHOD IS TO SCREW A PRESSURE GAUGE INTO 02 PORT BETWEEN ENGINE AND CAT THERE SHOULD NEVER BE MORE THAN 3PSI.ANOTHER METHOD AND LESS DETERMINING IS FEEL THE EXHAUST PRESSURE OUT TAIL PIPE WHILE SOMEONE OPENS THROTTLE.COMPARE THIS FELT PRESSURE TO A KNOWN GOOD CAR.THE SOURCE OF YOUR SYMPTOM COULD BE MANY THINGS ,BUT I WOULD START WITH THE TWO MENTIONED.

2003 Escape. 150,000 miles. Ck engine light is NOT on. Cuts out and guages reset. Seems to happen when speeding up.


I had a problem like this that turned out to be the crank shaft sensor which, was very easy to replace. The sensor can be seen when looking down into the engine on the passenger side, near the accessory belt area.

that light is the engine warning light you should go and have your car checked over at a garage running very low on oil can cause some serious problems with your engine. you'll also have to go to a garage to get them to turn your light off.

Ford Focus Engine Light


Start by getting either a mechanic or someone with an OBDII scanner to read the code so you know where to start. Lots of time a loose gas cap will cause a "Evap system small leak" code which illuminates the check engine light for a while. Other than that I can't help you much without knowing what code comes up.
