Ford focus engine failure
I've brought my ford focus from car dealer
in 2010 and it was 2008 model. I'm having
this engine problem with my car where the
engine would failed 'sometimes' when I'm
steering my vehicle either parking or just
slightly over turning my vehicle. The screen
would indicate system failure and it felt like
the engine had a reset and the indicator
such as the fuel and heat meter would gave
a false indication from original reading.
Sometime the car would just 'died' itslef
and had to wait couple minutes to reset it..
I've sent my car to ford repair as well as
other mechanic but they couldn't find the
problem or scan anything result.. any help?
There's a pressure switch on the power steering system that's supposed to tell the computer to increase the idle speed when the power steering is being used, since it increases the load on the engine. Your pressure switch is bad.
Should I resent my car to ford maintenance and repair and request for replacement of pressure switch?
I would unless you plan to fix it yourself. I have never replaced one before. I don't know if it's easy or difficult. I did look up the item on Ebay. It has a screw in end, and a plug in end. Looks easy enough. Between $80-$120 for the part if you plan to do it.
Thanks for the help.. Hopefully that will fix the problem
