Re: Focus Problem-shaking and feels like it is going to stall.
Hello there - I'm in Northampton, UK, and my 2002 Focus 1.8 tdci 115 (70k miles) has an 'engine shaking' problem. In fact, it has many many problems at the moment! (I'm just about to put a seperate post on about this - the car is a disaster!)
The shaking engine thing has happened a few times in the last week.
1st time was after driving about 10 miles, speeds of up to 70mph, and sitting in a traffic queue, the engine vibrates; I can feel it through the steering wheel too. If I rev the engine, it keeps shaking, as if it's only firing on 3 cylinders. I pulled off to a side road, turned the engine off, restarted it, and it was ok.
2nd time was from a 'cold' start up. It did the same thing. I knew I couldn't really drive it like that, so I re-started the engine again, and it was ok.
If anyone reading this can offer me help, either on this problem, or the 'Please help' post I'm about to write about the other problems (there are several!!), I'd be most grateful.
