my ford focus starts up but it acts like it is running out of gas
my ford focus will only run if i pour gas in the carburator but when i push the acctelator it stalls out
Sounds like your fuel pump may be bad or stopped up fuel filter
I had the same problem; it was the PCV valve. Cost $65 at my local mechanic, but if you can get under the car, it's behind the engine (I've got the DOHC Zetec).
