What octane fuel? Fuel filler door closed?

Have you pulled the engine cover yet? I read on a post that someone's intake hose was the wrong part number and had an "extra" unused hole in it.

93 Octane and yes fuel door is closed. What difference does the fuel door make anyway?

extra port was probably mine, I had the issue and posted pics......now codes.

My 2012 Focus SEL was a vibrating POS, Ford pulled the trans twice and could not fix it. They wouldn't do anything till it was leaking like a sieve, Nice car but who wants one that viabrates ~55-75 mph? Actually had the balls to tell me that is how it is. and now this, un-freaking believable! My wife cannot believe I bought another Ford and I am starting to see her point.

So you covered the port. Did you take it in and did they verify and replace that part?

Open fuel caps/doors can throw codes, it releases pressure from the system.

Sorry to hear your having problems. Hope it's solved quickly so you can enjoy the new ride.

Yes dealer confirmed it had wrong intake an swapped it for one in the lot so I did not have to wait for ordered one to come in. There are pics before and after on here. Should add that was within the first 100 miles

Good idea but remember no fuel cap in theses so sort of think the door does not matter either. That is usually evaporative emissions code too

Your wife makes a good point.

What I can't understand is why anyone would consider the purchase of a new Ford Focus when they are unable to get their existing Focus (which is under warranty) repaired properly.

Service is important.

Reality is a brand new (new to the market) car is going to have issues, could have stemmed from all the unmetered air your car was sucking in. Im sure it was running lean. Clear the code and see if it comes back. If it does take it in.

Un metered air does not play havoc on a non MAF car (speed density tuning)... but point well taken! Code is actual fault with the sensor
