I drive a ’99 Ford Focus LX 1.4(IRE).There is 51000 miles on the
clock.I am having a problem,as the car stalls and cuts out sometimes.
It happens when I am just about to stop at a junction or lights.I hit
the brake,the car slows down but the engine cuts out just before the
car stops.sometimes the battery light just flashes but the engine
keeps going.Whenever it stalls,its starts again without a problem.
This stalling could happen about twice a week on average.I had one of
the breather hoses replaced recently at a main dealer (as it ripped)
but the problem still occurs.I brought it to a mechanic who suggested
that the throttle housing gives trouble on the Focus in general,which
may cause my problem, but it would be pretty expensive to replace.
Does anybody have any suggestions as to what could be causing my
Many thanks in advance,
