i have a 2008 focus cc and my engine malfunction warning keeps coming on when i sometimes start the car, it will turn off after i turn off and restart a few time but if i drive with it on the car feels sluggish. also sometimes when starting the car will rev like i have press the pedal to the floor or few times wont start at all unless i pump the pedal please can you advise me i am thinking it may be the acceleration sensor ? how much would this cost to repair ?

Have something to contribute?

get a good local garage to read the stored fault codes, this should point you in the right direction to what the fault is as it could be several different things and will take the guess work out.

Sounds like your throttle position sensor or idle control valve is misbehaving.
