Having problems with your 2001 Ford Focus ?
Car won't stay running. Idles very rough, even at high RPM then dies when the gas pedal is released. AAMCO said it was the fuel pump. Changed the fuel pump and filter and found the fuel to be extremely dirty, was told that it was probably a mixture of rust, water, and fuel. Don't want to spend too much money.
Where to start?
Purge the system, change the air filter and give it a try or should I go ahead and change the pump module and pump relay? What about the injectors?
Start first by having the injectors checked. You may also go ahead and have it purged in a garage or by using some solution that can be mixed with fuel. The injector may likely be affected by the bad fuel. The last service may have happened a long time ago, so you may want to inspect the vacuum hoses for leaks and have them cleaned,
