Engine Performance problem
2001 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 87,800 miles
Hi, my name is Jonathan, I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 with 87,800 miles on it. Problem: My car hesitates and has trouble switching into higher gears whenever I turn on my A/C. A couple of months ago, it had the same problem, but worse, it actually turned off on me - I put in Mobil 1 10W-30 High Mileage Fully Synthetic oil, and reset the car's electronics by taking the battery out for 2hrs, which made the problem disappear. But now it is back again, but it is not as bad and has not shut down on me yet. It is an automatic transmission type.
