In Topic: Ford Focus Cutting Out After Motorway Journey

I have actually changed my car now, however the cause of the problem in mine was too much air getting into the fuel mixture. It might be the fuel filter housing that is drawing air into the fuel, causing it to cut out on long journeys.

Cheers for the quick response!

It was only serviced at 75000 and it did have fuel filter done along with the other filters.

Would the crank sensor only cause it to happen when it's been running constantly at high revs (80mph is about 2700rpm) for a sustained period of time? It's fine round town and when in the country when you're accelerating and deaccelerating all the time.

I'm not a mechanic, but am I right in thinking that basically this sensor is getting 'stuck' in a position when I'm doing motorway speeds for a period of time and when I change speed the sensor isn't changing so it's then not the right conditions for the engine to work?
