Customer Question

Ford Focus 55reg. The red warning light comes on and the engine light flashes. The car won't accelerate past 25/30mph and shakes quite violently when still at lights etc or on accelerating through 1st/2nd gear. Gas happened once before but stopped once the fuel had been topped up as it was quite low at this point. Running fine for a few weeks. Fuel topped up to full this morning and fault has come back.
