I have just bought 05 1.4petrol, when driving in gears 1/2/3 seems ok but as soon as i hit 30ish and put into 4th / 5th there is now power when foot is to the floor, it takes an age to pick up speed, ive taken it back to garage where bought from , he has put it on comp and said there are no apparant problems, hes told me that the focus just dont have that great power?????
Has the check engine light gone on? The focus is going into 'limp' mode to avoid damage to components, due to some problem. Even if there is no check engine light illuminated, bring it to a parts store for a free check of any codes stored in the cars computer. You need this info to figure out what is wrong. If after having the parts store scan for codes you still have questions, re-post them with the codes here.
