2001 running rough and tranny clunking

Asked by Apr 07, 2016 at 07:59 AM about the 2001 Ford Focus SE

Question type: General

2001 Focus started running rough about a week
ago, got progressively worse. Daughter's boyfriend
disconnected emission sensor (?) so the engine
wouldn't stumble and I could get to and from work;
12 mile total. Got to work fine, but going home
every time I stopped at a red light and then began
to accelerate, the car would "clunk" when changing
gear. Auto tranny. Any advice would be really
appreciated. Car has 104K miles.

CEL on ? Have the car scanned for the codes or get it into a shop for repair.

Not sure what CEL is (yes, I'm a woman), but definitely on the track to get it to the dealer. Thanks VERY much.
