You need to get the Code for this problem. Autozone and Oreillys will scan your car free. You may follow the advice of the Parts person or contact us with the Reply feature. This can be a simple fix.

Sometimes the scanners used will list several fixes for problems and the read out will show a list of fixes ranked by most probable to least probable. If there are several ideas on the cause contact us. If you do not want to fix it yourself, you can call around for your best repair price since you know what is wrong.

I hope my solution is helpful to you and if you decide to contact us, we can do more for you with the Diagnostic Code. Off hand it sounds like a misfire.

    is there a canadian Autozone comparison?

  • fordexpert Jan 04, 2011

    You may be able to find a free scan by doing a Browser search under Canadian Autoparts, or Canadian Auto Service. Here in the States, Sears stores still have Automotive service in what you would call Sears- Simpson stores. There is also Canadian Tire and Rubber auto stores. I am thinking perhaps PEP Boys, Walmart, and Western Auto. Some may at least be reasonable, if not free for the scan. You may have to call around.

    I do know that in obtaining my own parts, for both Auto and Marine use, that Canadian companies appear on my Web search. Autozone, Oreilys, and others use our ZIP Code as locators for stores. If you can cross search Canada and Autozone you may find an equivalent locator on a Company site for your country. Let me know the outcome please.

Blinking engine light not the plugs. Is it the timing belt ZTS zetec engine

Generally speaking when the check engine light blinks that means that there is a direct threat of catalytic converter damage. This is generally caused by a dead miss in the engine or bad spark timing, with out having a DTC I cannot specifically say what the problem maybe. However the timing belt wouldn't be a bad place to start, it may have jumped a few teeth and caused a misalignment in the cam timing.

I have a 2002 ford focus zts with 43000 miles help please

If you have replaced the Throttle Position sensor and the O2 sensors you need to look at the brakes for dragging.

Since you must not show a "check engine light" you would want a diagnostic test beyond the self-diagnostics on your car. This would be BIG testing machine which will show cylinder balance,timing, and emissions. The best would be a DYNO which would put your car on a roller table and have the car running through its gears while its wheels are spinning and the mechanic is under the hood.

You will get answers and the guessing is expensive in the long run. Some dealers have them and so do real performance shops.
