I drive a 2000 Focus that just rolled over 70,000 miles. I just took it in for maintenance a month or so ago, everything has been running great and suddenly, this morning the car surges/chugs as if I I were trying to accelerate with the car in too high a gear. It idles roughly and feels as if it about to choke, and when I accelerate not only does it surge as I described above, but the spedometer spikes also. My check engine light came on during my drive home from work today, and shortly before I pulled into my parking lot, the check engine light began flashing.
What is wrong! Electrical? Fuel?
