I'm a long time reader but this is my first post as I've come across a problem with my recently purchased Ford Focus!
I have a 2001 model (1.8 Zetec) which has recently played up and now has almost no power when driving. Pulling away from a standstill goes at a crawl and the car takes a long time to get up to speed. If you put your foot down the acceleration dies completely!
I have taken it to a local garage (Halfords Autocentres) who have tested the catalytic converter to see if it is blocked, replaced the maf sensor and replaced the fuel filter. None of these have solved the issue.
From looking online I can see that there was a recall on the 2001 Focus for the Fuel Pump, does it sound like that could be the problem or do you know of anything else that might cause this kind of performance issue?
Thanks in advance!
