yes, it is actually called the OBDII (as in roman numerals) stands for On-Board Diagnostics and you just need to find an OBDII scan tool. They make applications for your phone now that uses Bluetooth to connect to a wireless OBD connector (dongle?).

If you go to a major auto parts store they will let you use one for free; but be ready for them to sell you some parts :)

If you get read by an auto store then stand over their shoulder and get the exact code there. Write it down. Sometimes they have a tendency to interpret it a bit funky in order to sell parts that may not help you or your problem. Also easier to spit out the exact code number here, many forget the exact code description as described by parts store and start right off the bat getting suggestions online again that do not do anything but waste your money.

The OP is in...Albania? With a 99 Focus and 1.6L engine, that seems more likely than Alabama.
Guessing they might not have the same access to code readers at the local parts place there as here.

You might have to check the Internet to find an OBDII code reader but they aren't expensive (at least for the simpler ones) and will save you lots in the future. All OBDIIs use the same connection, so you just have to find one you like. Mine was $40 on sale and has been well-used. It only reads engine codes...but still has paid for itself many times over.
