Customer Question
My ford focus 1.8...

My ford focus 1.8 TDCI hatch back has give problems about 2wks. Started when it stalled could hear air while in car. Checked air coming from fuel filter pump supply. Went about 2wks then started stalling without air. First I put new fuel filter. Now car will idle for 10mins then stop. Garage diagnostic showed cylinder head sensor and crankshaft sensor faulty so I replaced these. No good! Stops shows heater light no start for while! Help!!

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle stall at low speeds? Does it sputter?

Has done sputtering and stall at low or high speeds

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Focus?

2001

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Focus yourself? What have you tried so far?

Self fix. Replaced two sensors fuel filter put cleaner in fuel

I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?
