Try the engine breather pipe behind the inlet manifold at the front of the engine ,as for the dim lights then it could be the alternator on the way out like the brushes worn down or the commutator worn out

Alternator ford aerostar

To remove the lead from the battery to the alternator while it is running is to invite a destroyed alternator . Varying voltages with engine RPM is indicative of a bad battery or problem alternator regulator . Have a load test done on the battery to check for cell problems and have the alternator bench tested to check the performance .

2000 ford focus engine light on. what could be

1 is the car losing power?
2 is the car rough at idle? or slightly over reving.

If so most likely cause for 2 is the air mass sensor, this go's to the air box you can cleran them with carb cleaner and sometimes this will fix it.

Get back to me for more ingo.

2002 ford focus a/c light only on at level 1, turn to level 2 or above a/c does not work.

Check your fuses, and check your air hoses, also the ford focus and ford escort have weak alternators and your alternator may not be putting out the power to operated your air over level 2, i would check this out by letting your car idle and have your lights on and your air, do this at night see if your lights go dim then bright and continue to do so.
