Focus 2006 LX Engine Fault Light

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to know if anyone out there has had this problem.
Engine fault light coming on randomly but lately coming on almost straight away.When this happens engine develops a random surge.Surge seems to disappear under acceleration.Engine light remains on until engine turned off.
Mechanic has put meter on it and apparently came up as P1709 which is a auto trans fault but car is manual and they can't clear fault.Another mechanic could not find any trouble code faults.

Have attempted to replace fuel filter but location is a mystery:-
Not near fuel tank
Not under rear seat
Not in engine bay
Assuming inside fuel tank but haven't been there yet.

PLEASE HELP as mechanics are at a loss

Thanks in advance
