Hi , I drive a 2001 ford focus, I bought it second hand two years ago. has always ran well , never stalled then it stalled 6 times in a 15 min drive. Each time it would stall would be when I'm trying to accelerate beyond 40 mph it would sorta rumble and then I couldn't accelerate gas pedal would seize) then it would stall. all emergency lights would come on , I would let it sit a minute and start er up again and so on... I took her to my mechanic (CAA certified) he did a scan test which detected a clogged fuel pump (which they flushed). I picked up the car and it drove fine for two days and then started stalling again (this time twice in a ten minute period of time) all same same as before. so I brought it back in and they removed a lot of corrosion of a circuit board? (he said it was very corroded) anyways again no problems while driving for 3 days then it did it again as I was trying to accelerate on a hill. I had to literally crawl at 10 mph up the hill so it wouldn't stall But I could feel it wanted to. I'm so frustrated. I do not know ANYTHING about cars.
