whoa, svt problems

Ive had my SVT for 4 months now. Fun car, but its been a pain in the ass.

Anyways, the check engine light has been on for a tad over a week but I havent noticed any real problems. Till tonight, the car feels really sluggish now.

Anyone have any idea's?

Go to AutoZone or Advanced Auto and have them scan it. They should be able to tell you or atleast give you a code and then check it on here.

Will it spit out some generic code that could mean anything? Like the codes on my 03 cobra that told me something was wrong with my fuel system. Real helpful that was.

What im wanting to know is if anyone has had an issue like mine and can tell me what it was. Anyone have a focus SVT that felt extremely sluggish?

It seems to me like this is a fuel problem, which part on these cars fuel systems is problem prone?

Well without knowing atleast what area the trouble is coming from it's hard to say. Get it scanned and go from there. Guessing what it isn't going to do any good cause all it is, is guessing.
