Acceleration issues, Ford Focus 2010 1.6L AT

Asked by Feb 14, 2018 at 06:14 AM about the 2010 Ford Focus S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Was driving on the highway today when at some point lost power and
acceleration. Pushing accelerator to the bottom has no effect, car wouldn't go
past 70, then 60, then 40km/h. Stopping, switching ignition off and on again
seems to solve problem for a few minutes, but issue soon is back. Last
episode happened like 200meters from home, was going up small hill, car
couldn't accelerate past 20km/h and eventually stopped and choked.
Restarted and manage to get home...

It could be a o2 censored this is happened to me in my car before I was driving and I was pushing the gas and I was losing power at the same time my car just kept going slower and slower and slower

When my vehicle did the exact same thing as yours it's doing, it turned out to be the fuel pump. Just saying. Might want to check that out.

Thanks for answers, I went for a test drive first clearing all DTC's, here is what I've got after couple km's: http://oi64.tinypic.com/iyiv05.jpg http://oi63.tinypic.com/t7xy7b.jpg Perhaps this narrows it down to o2? any way to test if pump is at fault without replacing it?
