I have a 2012 Ford Focus. After getting gas and about 10 miles (16.09 km) down the road, the car started to lose power and then stalled. Got it started, drove a little and it did the same thing. Finally, I made it home. It stalled again and now won’t start at all. I never had a problem until I put gas in it. My Ford mechanic said I need a new computer system. Could my Ford Focus' loss of power be something other than the computer system?
First, make sure you got fuel pressure (bad fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator, clogged fuel filter). Download trouble codes, even if the engine light is not on. There could be a pending code on the computer's memory. A bad sensor can prevent the engine from starting, like a faulty crankshaft, camshaft or throttle position sensor.
