Bout to give up........

closer and closer........im a chip away from boost and now THIS.......THIS damn thing is killin me, driving down the highway and the old faithful ! light comes on and the bastard loses power for a sec, ok i think what the heck, then it ran normal........little while later it does it again...........then again..............this is not the first problem this car has given me, and im sure it wont be the last. i really dont think ill ever see boost, not in this car anyway, im SICK of it, Ford is NO help, i have painted engine items so they throw that in myface if i ask for warranty work...........im seriously thinking of ending it all w/ this car and the boost and everything, getting from point A to B is more important right now than the BOOST..............any input, condolences, advice?

Come on Greg. Use our FF precious resources.

We have a lot of members that can help you or at least try to help on the phone. Try hitting up Ray at McNews or even TTom for help. I'm not even talking about Jeff and Ed.

Plus a lot more people have boosted Foci on the Jet. Ask there.

Hope everything works out for you though.

Peace...

I mean this in the BEST possible way, but if this kind or predicament is something that is hard for you to handle, then a boosted focus will probably put you over the edge. I hate to see you sell all your shizit though.

you put more money in your car then I can ever dream of doing. Remember the reasons why you love to go fast. You've made a Ford Focus into mofocus's Focus. Your baby just needs some love. Simplify the matter. Something's not right, so find out how to fix it. Maybe you don't need Ford? Check out domestic wrenchs around your area. It will take time, but I'm willing to bet a Eibach Pro Kit that it will save you money. Just take it one step at a time and meet each challenge with logic and passion.

yeah after going through a bunch of BS w/ Ford, i find the bolts have come out of my water pump pulley, and there is only one half way in there sorta-holding it in, so im ordering those and hoping thats all it was, i mean a water pump pulley+loose, and the "!" light seem to line up in logic to me, either way, i have changed priorities, and realized i dont need a boosted focus(yet) and that it would be best to let the $$ sit in my account and pay off the focus and just use it as point A-B car, thats really all i need, ive decided to keep all my exterior stuff for now, so wether that makes more of a ricer or not i dont know.....dont really care, i plan on getting some pics of it up though
