Today I drove a taxi cab with a horn that doesn't work. That's like expecting an Italian to talk with their hands tied!

^^lol
Today my boss had the cab I usually drive, so I got stuck with the one with no horn and the driver seat adjusters don't work

I really don't use the horn very much, but sometimes it's needed

oh you got the good car! I had a '95 t-bird that the horn went out on... must be a common problem with the older Fords.

you should pick up your fares in the focus! scare them in the corners!

fock I got my check engine light back on and the car just dosent seem right. Its got this ticking sound that seems to be coming from the intake. I feel that my only option left is to tkae it to the dealer and let them look at it. But I really dont like taking it up the rear so I dont
want to take it to them.

She throwing P0103, P0200, P0300, P0400. I cleaned my MAF and checked my EGR valve all seemed well after that, that was two weeks ago and now its back to shity. I have a feeling that I may need a new MAF and EGR but at 200 and 100 just for parts, thats an expensive guess.

Im really bumbed guys, I need to make sure its running good for the meet. You guys got any ides or maybe your a better mechanic than I and want to help me out?

did you search for those codes yet?

this thread has a few good tips, definitions for codes:
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ighlight=P0103

seems like P0200 might be the one to start with... injector circuit malfunction. That would cause the p0300 code (misfire) and possibly affect the EGR and other things. That would also explain the tic sound near the intake.

I'd take it in to the dealer for an estimate, then buy the parts and do it yourself.
