I have a 2004 Ford Fiesta Zetec, latley when I have the car in reverse or drive it feels like my car is going to die. I was driving back home the other day and the check engine came on. The car felt like it lost all power and was very sluggish. I pulled over and stopped the engine for a good 15 mins. Then started the engine all was fine, but it had a hard time accelerating. I took it to the mechanic and they couldn't find anything wrong. But I can't help feeling like there is something really wrong. The car also smells like burning oil and fuel doesn't last as long.
first find a real mechanic, check engine lights set codes which can be retrieved to find the problem area. Now if now codes will read, then either the main computer is bad or wiring from it to sensors is bad.
