Car dies once turned on and the gas is pressed?

Asked by Jun 26, 2017 at 02:46 PM about the 2002 Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 ford focus and I was driving it and I stopped at a red light and the
temperature gauge went up and once I pressed the gas pedal it turned off and
the engine light came on. It will crank and start but it idles and immediately
shuts off. Any questions?
