  • Ford Model: Focus 02 reg

Posted 01 June 2010 - 04:11 PM

My Ford Focus (1.6, 02 reg, Ghia) has some sort of engine problem. Symptoms:

1) Orange warning light (with picture of engine) on is lit up, then when I go up to higher revs (circa 2600+) for a reasonable length of time it settles into a steady flash. If i am going along the motorway it is flashing.
2) At low revs (sub 2500) it is sluggish and juddery as though it is really struggling, as far as I can tell this seems to be true of all the gears.
3) There are no visible leaks, the oil & water is at the required level. I have no problem starting it.

Anyone got any ideas??

From some prolonged googling it seems that it might be emissions related? But that wouldnt explain the 'sluggishness' at low revs...?

Have something to contribute?

the engine mag light lights up to show a problem with the engine,this is usually sensor related,you will need to get the fault codes read from the ecu to point you towards what the problem is,any local garage could do this for a reasonable cost.
