Need help - accelerator stops working whilst driving and really dangerous. Ford Focus MK1 TDDI

Recommended Posts



I am wondering if anyone could please help me diagnose my issue. I have a Ford Focus MK1 TDDI and today whilst driving the accelerator suddenly stops working - the engine does not cut out. I have to stop and restart the car and then it starts working again?!


Any help is greatly appreciated.


Many thanks

hard to say. fuel filter blocked so only allows a limited amount through, but still enough for tickover. 

engine management light on? fault codes?

i do recall some years ago people saying loss of engine power caused by faulty speed sensor, does speedo go down to zero even before the car slows right down?
