"A diagostic" is a loose term for troubleshooting. It clearly depends on the trouble your having as to how you trouble shoot.

I have a 2002 ford focus and it just started to run rough. I found a broken tube on the exhaust manifold that runs to the intake manifold and I am wondering what is tube and if it is causing my problem?

A broken fan heater can not work and A FORD Foucs does not run

yes, I did it. But the engine still stalls.

Not a good Idea. I would run the 5w20 unless I had to add a Quart in an emergency, then have an oil change soon

This is a diagnostic process. If the coolant isn't low and the fan will run when the AC is turned on it will need a Mechanic to Diagnose.

Do NOT use Diesel fuel in a Ford Focus. The engine will stop running and you will have to drain the gas tank to rid the car of the diesel fuel. Gasoline engines are not designed to run on diesel. They do not have enough compression to cause the diesel fuel to combust The only engine used in a 2000 Ford Focus was the 2.0 which is NOT a diesel engine.

Either you have a bad temp sensor or your thermostat is staying wide open and letting the engine run to cool.

Because you're NOT supposed to be in 5th gear at 35mph.

32 foot pounds. Check them after it has been run.

I was looking at the 2002 Ford Thunderbird Owner Guide and it shows that the vehicle is designed to run on " premium " unleaded gasoline , 91 octane or higher , it doesn't show anything about E-85 ( so I would say no )

The computer has detected a fault. You need to run a computer diagnostic to find out what's wrong.

I Own a 2002 Grand Am SE1 and I simply went to Advanced Auto Parts. They will let you borrow a diagnostic handheld tool that you will connect to a connector under the drivers side dash. Then bring the tool back inside. They will get a printout with the diagnosis. They will tell you how the tool works. It's easy.

It would Depend , If it is Blue Smoke it is oil burning which could be a Blown Head Gasket or Worn Rings. If it is a black smoke or dark in color it may be fouled plugs but it would run rough if it was that.

You might not be able to program your 2002 Ford Explorer remotes because you might not have turned the ignition to off and then run eight times. You must do this to reset the remote.

run straight pipes. illegal in many states. will lose torque, but will be very loud.

No. It will NOT run right. You'll need a new converter. It's against the law, anyway!

Most automotive parts stores will run a diagnostic check, free or charge.

I was looking in the 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac owners manual and IF you have the FFV engine ( flexible fuel vehicle ) you can run E85 or " regular " unleaded gas with an octane rating of 87 or any combination of the 2 fuels If your 2002 Sport Trac is a FFV there will be a sticker inside your fuel door , and the 8th " character " of your VIN will be a " K "

Run a tank of high octane through it or add a bottle of octane boost, I did this 4 months ago and have been able to run 87 octane in it and the ping has not returned yet.

User Avatar

A sensor could be bad. Take it to Auto Zone and have them run a diagnostic. It's free and they usually have the parts on hand.

There are many possibilities. Run a computer diagnostic code to find out what if any diagnostic codes have been stored on the computer. What if we dont have the resources to run a diagnostic code on it? I think it might be out of timing 1-2 notches.

Change the plugs and plug-wires. DON'T gap the plugs!! Outta the box and into the engine, ONLY!!
