Why does my car shut off when I stop/break?
I have a 2005 ford focus. It shuts off when I stop, but then starts right back up; it starts
up with a bit of a struggle (I was told that the starter may need to be replaced.). The
engine light came on, I had it hooked up to a diagnostic machine and was told that the
light coming on was an error, so the mechanic reversed something so the light wouldn't
come on anymore. After that the car died, had the battery checked (sure enough it was
bad), replaced the battery, and now it's shutting off when I stop. Please help!
Possibly dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate
Thank you! Is a dirty fuel filter also a possibility?
Could be but less likely. Stopped up fuel filter would give you worse drive ability issues.
thank you for your help!
I have a 2014 ford focus all of a sudden the oil light and battery light pops up at the same time and rpms goes down and thr car starts to shake really bad and shuts off it only lastes up for 1-3 min on and repeats the same thing over??? We have took it ti the dealer ship 4 times they fux it but another week or 2 does the same.
