It sounds to me like the coil pack has gone bad. A symptom is that the car will idle fine, but it stumbles when the motor picks up speed. It resembles a fuel problem and it does get worse when the coil has warmed up.

Ford focus keeps losing power when driving


Does it lose power and die? Does it start cutting out and then lose power? Does it start running poorly when it is cold or only after it warms up? Please give all of the information that you have.

While driving my 1.6 focus the speedometer goes to zero and the radio volume goes low. Whats up?


I can give you most of your answer and it depends on the Radio. Ford has a speed-compensated Radio that will adjust the volume of the Radio to the speed of the car. This feature means you will not have to adjust a radio down at a stoplight or when going to a drive-thru.

Then when the car speeds up and engine and road noise increase, so does the volume on the Radio. So you will not have to adjust the volume of the Radio when you drive.

You need to fix the speedometer to get the radio to work correctly. You probably have a sensor connector or the sensor itself making the problem. Go to an Autoparts store and get a sensor and it will probably work fine.

Sounds like you are losing vacuum pressure. I would have a mechanic check all your vacuum lines. I had the same problem a while back and all it was was a broken 92cent hose.
