Ok I have a 2000 ford focus zx3 and I started notessing a few days ago after I would go above 4000 rpm it didnt really have any power. Then today I started my car and I let it warm up and I drove it about 2 or 3 miles and I was on the hi-way and once I got up to 70 it was like it wouldn go any faster, I had the petal to the floor and it didnt go faster and didnt slow down. So I got off the hi-way and it started sputtering, and almost dying first thing I thought of was maybe the gas was bad but it was new gas it hadnt been sitting in the car or anything so I thought it might be the fuel filter, and so I changed the fuel filter and there was some junk in the old one it was kinda brown but wasnt really gritty at all, so like before I started my car and let it warm up and after about 3 miles it did the same thing over again, sputterin kinda dying out, didnt make any grinding or wierd sounds just sounded normal. Could it be the catalytic converter? I have no idea. Thanks
