Ford Focus warning lights

Five weeks ago the Glow Plug warning light came on when driving my Ford Focus.

I stopped the car, turned off the engine, waited a few seconds, then re-started the engine and all was OK until yesterday.

Driving at 65mph the engine suddenly felt hesitant and both the glow plug and engine warning lights came on.

Again, I stopped the car and tuned off engine for a few seconds. After re-staring engine all seemed OK and we finished our short jorney. The car has done about 57,000 miles.

What do you suggest?

It could be that you have a fault with the glow plugs, however I would suggest that you get the engine on a diagnostic check, which should then confirm what the problem is.
